The Marietta Museum of History is one of Marietta's unique treasures. The museum is located in the Historic Kennesaw House, a structure built in 1845. Located just steps off the Marietta Square, the museum is a perfect afternoon activity for visitors to take in along with local lunch and shopping.

I was very impressed with the museum. There was so very much to see, especially the Civil War information, guns, and stories! I also liked the 1950's kitchen - remember it when I was a little girl.
