Overview of Marietta
Just north of Atlanta, Marietta Georgia radiates traditional Southern charm. This part of the state felt the brunt of General Sherman's wrath during the Civil War, but tradition here isn't so easily snuffed. While many city buildings were burned, others hung in. Some of the city's other assets-like the Chattahoochee River and the Kennesaw Mountain foothills-look likely to never say die. If you opt for a Marietta apartment, you'll live amidst this vibrant spirit.
Living in Marietta
Early settlers started putting down roots in Marietta in 1824. Ten years later, there was a courthouse square to gather around. The Western and Atlantic Railroad chose the city as its base not long after and then the money came calling. It was in Marietta, during the Civil War, that Union Army raider James Andrews stole the locomotive right off the train called The General. The ensuing so-called "Great Locomotive Chase" ended with Andrews' capture and execution. General Sherman, a couple of years later, torched the town as part of his march to the sea. Marietta rebuilt and restored. Today, The National Civic League recognizes the city as one of the best communities in the country. The courthouse square remains, but the courthouse does not.
