Cobb County's Real Estate Market Today

The 2010 census put Cobb County’s population at 688,078.  It covers a total of 344 square miles and includes the cities of Marietta, Powder Springs, Austell, Acworth, Kennesaw, and Smyrna. As one of the five counties included in the Metro Atlanta area, Cobb County is of great interest to real estate buyers.  It is adjacent to Fulton County - a.k.a. the City of Atlanta - as well as to Douglas, Paulding, Cherokee, and Bartow Counties. 

Cobb County is the most-educated county in the state of Georgia; it is twelfth overall in the US.  There are two public school districts and many private schools.  Southern Polytechnic State University, Kennesaw State University, Chattahoochee Technical College, and other colleges make up the higher education opportunities right here in the county.

Cobb County History

Cobb County was named after Judge Thomas Cobb, a US Senator; its largest city and government seat, Marietta, was named after his wife, Mary.  This entire section of Georgia was originally Cherokee land.  However, in 1832 it was divided into 24 counties, one of which was Cobb.  The county remained largely rural until Atlanta’s rise as a major player in the US economy.

Modern Cobb County is a bustling suburb of Atlanta.  And like much of this part of Georgia, it has strong ties with the Civil War.  The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, one of the Confederate victories of the War, took place here.  Today, Kennesaw Mountain is home to a National Park commemorating the event.

Cobb County is home to some of the most thriving communities in Georgia and some of its most desirable real estate.  For more information on Cobb County, you can visit any of the following links:
