The city of Euharlee (pronounced You-Harley) takes it's name from Euharlee Creek, which in turn comes from the Cherokee name Eufaula, meaning,
"She laughs as she runs".
Euharlee is the third largest city in Bartow County, and is home to two schools
and four churches. Euharlee maintains a City Police force and is protected
by Bartow County Fire Department Station 3.
Present-day Euharlee was settled in the 1840's after Burges Mill was constructed on the creek.
Euharlee today retains many historic buildings dating back to the 1800s, including the famous covered bridge responsible for
coining the slogan "The Covered Bridge City".
The Euharlee Covered Bridge, is the state's oldest remaining covered bridge, listed on the
National Register of Historic Places and part of the Georgia Covered Bridge Trail.
Just south of the town, the soaring cooling towers of Georgia Power's Plant Bowen provide
another landmark. The contrast between these two examples of the finest technology of their respective eras perhaps illustrates the City best: we are a progressive community
working to move our City forward while preserving the rich history of our past.
