Cobb County is part of the metropolitan Atlanta area that has it all- history, cultural diversity, economic prosperity, and abundant opportunities for housing, entertainment, and business. It is the third largest county in Georgia, with over 700,000 residents and 27,000 businesses calling Cobb home. The history and charm that characterizes the South is evident here along with the innovations and amenities of big city living.
Cobb County was one cut out of the Cherokee Indian territory (along with 9 other counties) in 1832. It was named in honor of former U.S. Senator, Representative and Superior Court Judge Thomas Willis Cobb, and the county seat, Marietta, was named for his wife. Cobb County was involved in several battles during the Civil War. The battle of Kennesaw Mountain was the largest, and was instrumental in the union Army advancement towards Atlanta. Along the path that was blazed by the Union Army, much of Cobb suffered the same fate as Atlanta, with only two buildings escaping. WWII ushered in a new enterprise to Cobb County- plane production. Bell Aircraft produced over 600 bombers for the war. Since then, Lockheed Martin has produced a lot of planes for the military including cargo planes and the F22 fighter. The Home Depot, the world's largest home-improvement retailer, is headquartered here.
But Cobb County is also the place where Atlantans, and people all over the Southeast, come to play. Six Flags over Georgia and Whitewater- the South's largest water park, attract thousands every year. If you want to relax, canoeing, or ‘tubing' down the Chattahoochee River is a favorite past-time. There is also a vibrant arts community in Cobb, which hosts performances of the Atlanta Opera, the Atlanta Ballet, Cobb Symphony Orchestra, and many top-notch recording artists. There are over 30 public parks and 7 golf courses as well. Cobb County also has a transit system to efficiently and economically get you throughout the county and to Atlanta as well. Unlike many areas of the country, house values have remained steady here- perhaps because people don't want to leave when they get here. With all that Cobb County has to offer, we're sure you will want to stay as well.
