Marietta City Guide

Although Marietta is a bedroom community of Atlanta, the city of 67,000 residents has developed an identity of its own. The historic downtown area, liberally decorated in brick, remains highly walkable and farmers still come into town to sell their goods at local markets. The seat of Cobb County, Marietta covers a lot of real estate, but thanks to a bevy of suburban subdivisions, the city retains a distinct family vibe. An air reserve base and a Lockheed Martin manufacturing plant provide many Marietta jobs for those not commuting down I-285 to Atlanta.

Architecture and landmarks

The Federal-style Kennesaw House, an old cotton warehouse, was one of only four buildings to survive Sherman’s Civil War March to the Sea – nowadays the historic property houses the Marietta Museum of History. The 1838-built Oakton House is considered to be Marietta’s oldest residence, while Brumby Hall remains a great example of antebellum southern architecture. While Marietta has textbook examples of Victorian-era architecture, the housing market is well populated with the Colonial Revivals and split-levels that defined mid-20th century housing trends.

Several Civil War-era sites have been preserved in Marietta from the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain in 1864, including the Marietta Confederate Cemetery. Less conventional landmarks include Sprayberry Rock, a petroglyph-decorated soapstone on Sandy Plains Road and the Big Chicken on Cobb Parkway North. The 56-foot tall steel fowl has advertised a chicken restaurant here since the mid-‘50s.

All public schools in Marietta are managed by the city, while all schools outside city limits are operated by the county - a plus for Marietta, which runs a charter school system.

A branch of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the world’s largest accredited university for aviation and aerospace degrees, is perched on Dobbins Air Reserve Base.

Safety

Residents in Marietta are exposed to a 1 in 201 chance of being a victim of a violent crime, according to FBI statistics. This is slightly higher than Georgia as a whole, which registers a 1 in 264 chance. Property crimes are also higher in Marietta, although the numbers are skewed by a disproportionate rate of vehicle theft in the city.
