Welcome to Marietta

​​​​​​​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.

Nostalgic charm emanates from this historic small town known for its picturesque square, dynamic arts scene, and gracious hospitality.​​​​​​​

Marietta is a city in Cobb County, just 10 minutes northwest of Atlanta. Before there was an Atlanta or a Chattanooga there was Marietta, Georgia. Established in 1834, Marietta, Georgia is located along with the dramatic backdrops of the Chattahoochee River and historic foothills of Kennesaw Mountain. Here you’ll find everything from entertainment, sports venues, and the great outdoors to a stunning array of places to eat, drink, celebrate and enjoy the traditional Southern charm, hospitality, and history of this quaint, modern city. There is so much to do in Marietta, and it’s close enough to the major Atlanta attractions that Marietta also serves as the perfect "home base"!
