Marietta is located in central Cobb County, Georgia, United States, and is the county’s seat and largest city. Marietta is the fourth largest of the principal cities (by population) of the Atlanta metropolitan statistical area. The city has six historic districts, some on the National Register of Historic Places. A seventh, along Kennesaw Avenue, is proving more controversial, and is still being considered as of March 2010. The city’s welcome center is located in the historic train depot. Downtown is the town square and former location of the county courthouse. The square is the site of several cultural productions and public events, including a weekly farmers’ market.
The Marietta Players perform semi-professional theater year round. The Strand Theatre has been renovated back to its original design and features classic films and other events. The Marietta Museum of History exhibits the history of the city and county. The museum is home to thousands of artifacts including items from Marietta residents and businesses. The Marietta Gone with the Wind Museum, also called “Scarlett on the Square”, houses a collection of memorabilia related to Gone with the Wind, both the book and the film. Miramax Films and Disney filmed scenes of the 1995 movie Gordy here.
All of the public schools in Marietta proper are operated by the Marietta City Schools (MCS), while the remainder of the schools in Cobb County, but outside the city limits, are operated by the Cobb County School District, including all of the county’s other cities. MCS is one of the smallest school districts in metro Atlanta, with one high school, Marietta High School, grades 9-12; a middle school, Marietta Middle School, grades 7 and 8; Marietta Sixth Grade Academy; and several elementary schools: A.L. Burruss, Dunleith, Hickory Hills, Lockheed, Marietta Center for Advanced Academics, Park Street, Sawyer Road, and West Side.
