About Marietta, Georgia
Marietta was incorporated in 1834, 13 years before Atlanta. In 1864, a large portion was ordered burned by General William Tecumsah Sherman, as he and his army roared through on “Sherman’s March to the Sea”. Downtown Marietta was destroyed, but 400 buildings, including 5 churches, were permitted to remain.Click Here to read more or less about Marietta Georgia.
The downtown was rebuilt into what is now known as the historic Marietta Square. The train depot, burned by Sherman’s men, now hosts the Marietta Welcome Center, where you can find out more about historic homes in Marietta and get tour maps of the area.
Some Marietta homes for sale are historic treasures, being constructed before or in the wake of General Sherman’s “March to the Sea”.
Steeped in history, yet socially progressive, Marietta is also a city of employment opportunity, with the Lockheed Martin aeronautics manufacturing plant and Dobbins Air Reserve Base employing a large number of Marietta residents.
