This beautiful Marietta home was built for John Campbell in 1852. The masonry structure was gutted during the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain in 1864, but was quickly restored and enlarged in the years following the Civil War. In 1952 the house was sold to Saint Joseph Catholic Church. Cobb Landmarks was distressed to learn that the church was considering demolishing the house. Today Cobb Landmarks met with John Schiavone of Catholic Construction Services. We had a good discussion and everyone at the meeting agreed that saving and repurposing the house deserved further exploration. This does not mean the house is saved. It does mean that repurposing the house will be seriously considered. We thank John for meeting with us and will continue to offer assistance however we can.
We are committed to empowering our community with an understanding of the events, people, and places that formed our past, so that we may all strive for a brighter future. Won't you join us?
