Cobb County is a county in the U.S. state of Georgia, located just north-central portion of Atlanta and ranks as third most populated. This area also includes Marietta, which serves both purposes - being the capital city for Cobb alongside Gwinnett County.
Large employers in this area include WellStar Health System and Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Systems, which houses many defense contractors like Boeing or even Northrup Grumman, headquartered outside town on its private airport! Cobb County Schools is also within proximity providing ample opportunities for educational growth as it is the largest employer in this Georgia county, employing over 15 thousand people.
The city of Marietta is capitalizing on its historical landmarks to attract new businesses and residents. The municipalities of Acworth, Austell, Kennesaw, and Marietta are all within Cobb County. Powder Springs is also in this jurisdiction, but it's more centrally located between other towns than on its east side like Smyrna or along I-75, making for easy accessibility from most major roadways outside Atlanta.
Notable attractions and sites of interest include Kennesaw State University, an essential milestone for educational institutions in this region; the National Cemetery, which holds many veterans from World War II up until the present day (a tribute not only by name but also location); and finally Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park - a place where people can get outdoor adventure while learning more about our country's history as well.
Cobb County is a small but thriving county in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell, GA Metropolitan Statistical Area. It lies immediately to the northwest of Atlanta's city limits and features rich natural beauty with parks like Cheatham Hill right outside its borders.
The rapid growth of Cobb County has been a significant factor in its transformation from a rural area into one of the most populated counties not just for Georgia but also nationwide.
