Marietta History

The city was officially recognized on December 19, 1834. It also became the home base of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. Oakton, which was constructed in 1838, is the oldest continuously occupied residence of the city. It also served as the headquarters of Major General Loring during the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain.
