Marietta is the county seat of, and largest city in, Cobb County, Georgia. It is one of Atlanta’s largest suburbs, with approximately 60,000 residents. Though it is not known for certain, it is believed that the city was named for Mary Cobb, wife of former U.S. Senator and Superior Court judge Thomas Willis Cobb for which the county was named. The people of Marietta enjoy a humid subtropical climate, characterized by hot, humid summers and mild winters.

A Brief History

Prior to 1824, white settlers built a handful of homes near the Cherokee town now known as Kennesaw. The first official town plat was laid out in 1833 and served as the town square, in which a court house was located. After the construction of the courthouse, the Georgia General Assembly recognized Marietta as a town in 1834. It was officially incorporated as a city in 1852. Despite a number of fires, battles, and other challenges, Marietta survived to modern times.
