Cassville is an unincorporated community in Bartow County in the U.S. state of Georgia. It was originally the county seat before the name was changed from Cass County. The seat was moved to Cartersville after General Sherman destroyed Cassville in his Atlanta Campaign of 1864. Cassville, although no longer incorporated, is said to encompass an area beginning at the Cassville Road-Firetower Road intersection and extending a mile in all directions. Cassville lies in between Adairsville, Georgia and Cartersville, Georgia right off of Highway 41. It is considered part of metro Atlanta but still is maintaining its small town atmosphere. Population estimates of the area show Cassville has a population near 5000. Cassville is home to one of the oldest post office buildings in the country and Cass Grocery, a general store that has stood since 1800. Other points of interest include the Cassville History Museum, Cassville Visitors Information (located at the former fire department building) and Cassville Confederate Cemetery, located on Cass-White Road. Being the only store in Cassville, Cass Grocery is a place where you can find the local old men sitting outside on the brick benches conversing over the latest current events or about old times in Cassville. The store's full name is Cass Grocery and Hardware. The store offers groceries, hardware, feed, hand-dipped ice cream, and a deli. Owned and operated by David Stephens, Cass Grocery still offers a full service gas station, which adds to Cass Grocery's old timey image.
