Around the Block

From Cherokee settlement to antebellum railroad center, Cobb County's seat is now a modern walkable community.

Early settlers began to move into these native Cherokee lands in 1824, and by 1838, the town was selected as a hub for the Western and Atlanta Railroad, igniting a boom that would continue until the Civil War. Preservation efforts have turned Marietta into an inspiring blend of historic homes and buildings contrasted by a handful of new developments.
