William Root House c. 1845
Operated by Cobb Landmarks, the William Root House Museum offers an accurate portrayal of middle-class life in Marietta during the 1860s. It is the oldest wood-frame structure in downtown Marietta and hosts thousands of students and visitors each year. Plan your visit.
Power Cabin c. 1843
Located on a hillside above the Chattahoochee River, this cabin is believed to have been built by George Abner Power about 1843. Donated to Cobb Landmarks by the Trust for Public Land, it is one of the county’s few remaining log cabins. The cabin is not yet open to the public.
Manning Cabin c. 1830
Originally located on Macland Road, this cabin was occupied by members of the Manning family during the Civil War. The Manning family generously donated the cabin to Cobb Landmarks in 2016. The cabin is being relocated and preserved at the William Root House site.
