Welcome to Marietta
Marietta, located just 15 miles northwest of Atlanta, is the county seat of Cobb County, being Cobb County’s largest town. With such close proximity to the city of Atlanta, Marietta is an ideal place to call home. Marietta was originally a hub for the Western and Atlantic Railroad. The city thrived off this railway until it was relocated further south. Marietta is brimming with unique neighborhoods and friendly neighbors. Traditional, historical, colonial, modern and ranch-style homes run throughout the town. Many people choose to live in Marietta for the school system, high employment rate, commute to Atlanta, low crime rate, small-town feeling and incredible local amenities such as parks, sports fields, pools. Marietta Square and Glover Park must be on your list of Marietta sites. The square has a small-town welcoming energy. You will regularly see children playing, residents leisurely reading and hear chatter at the many restaurants.
