The first homes in Marietta were built before 1824, though it wasn’t legally recognized as a community until 1834. Though the origin of the city’s name is unknown, many believe that it was named for Mary Cobb, the wife of U.S. Senator and Superior Court Judge Thomas Willis Cobb. Cobb County, the county in which Marietta resides, is named after Judge Cobb. The Great Locomotive Chase in the Civil War began in Marietta when the undercover Union Army soldiers boarded the train they would ultimately seize just a stop later in Kennesaw.
