Founded on December 19, 1834, Marietta stands the test of time, having lived through historic events such as the Civil War and the Trail of Tears.

Ranked as one of the most premier counties in the state of Georgia, Cobb County boasts a population of over 700,000 and stands tall as the fifth-highest-income location in the state. In addition, many of its schools consistently rank higher than most public schools in the state of Georgia.

Marietta has garnered national recognition for providing its residents with a high quality of living. Marietta Square, located conveniently in the middle of Marietta, is home to Glover Park. It is known for annually hosting various concerts and outdoor events Glover Park Concert Series. Although mostly suburban, downtown Atlanta is a quick ride away, as Marietta has easy access to Interstate 285.
