KENNESAW
Georgia, U.S.A.
SHANTY TOWN
Welcome to Kennesaw, Georgia.
This city of around 30,000 people is situated in Cobb County, around 29 miles from downtown Atlanta. The city was named after the Cherokee Indian word gah-nee-sah, meaning burial ground, and archeologists are still finding Native American artifacts in the area. The city of Kennesaw was originally known as Shanty Town, for the many camps of Scottish and Irish railroad workers. Kennesaw was first established as a railroad depot, when industrialism led to the construction of railroads meant to connect surrounding areas with Atlanta. You can actually still see the tracks running through downtown by Main Street, displaying an important testament to the city's inception. Kennesaw has been recognized as one of the Top 25 Cities and Towns with Best American Values by Newsmax Magazine, for its excellent school systems, low crime rate, fresh air, green surroundings and family oriented recreation opportunities. It was also selected as one of the 10 Best Towns for Families by Family Circle Magazine, with the reason being its wonderful suburban charm, affordable housing, terrific schools and more. Should you find yourself in this great city, check out the Town Center At Cobb, a large mall boasting 175 stores, including Macy's and JCPenney. For culture, visit the Museum History and Holocaust Education, which is housed at the Kennesaw State University's campus and presents public events, exhibits and education on the subject of World War II and Holocaust. Performing arts connoisseurs can check out the Murray Arts Center, a venue that features a 600-seat theatre and plenty of rehearsal and recording space. Attendees can enjoy both local and national acts as well as concerts by the Cobb Symphony Orchestra. Finally, for a day of fresh air, residents have access to the recreational havens of Noonday Park and Swift-Cantrell Park, as well as an outstanding country club and golf course called at Marietta Country Club.
