MARIETTA - On Friday, July 26, 2019, the Marietta Museum of History is continuing its popular program, the Remember When Club, by following the Marietta Square’s theme of “Christmas in July.” This month, the Remember When Club will take a tour down memory lane of the Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Tour of Homes’ newest tour location, the “Forest Hills Historic District.” Forest Hills is located just a few blocks from the Marietta Square, south of the North Marietta Parkway, between Cherokee Street and Cole Street. The homes within this quaint neighborhood are outstanding examples of various types and styles of architecture prevalent during the early to mid-20th century. Architectural styles in this district range from Queen Anne, bungalow, Georgian, Folk Victorian, Craftsman, Tudor, ranch and more.

The owner and developer of Forest Hills was William L. Vance. Vance was born in Kentucky, went to school in Memphis, and lived in Chicago and Asheville before moving to Marietta in 1922. He was involved in real estate and was a member of the Country Club, the Rotary Club, and the Episcopal Church. The Forest Hills development started in 1928 and was “believed to be destined as one of Marietta’s most beautiful and exclusive residential sections.”

Join the MMH as residents both past and present, from houses both grand and small, reminisce about the Historic Forest Hills Neighborhood.

The Remember When Club explores what life was like in Cobb County when Highway 41 was known as the 4-lane, everyday shopping was done on the Square and life was just a little bit simpler. The Remember When Club discusses a different topic each session and encourages the audience to participate by sharing their memories as well.

The Marietta Museum of History uses ordinary objects to tell the extraordinary stories of Marietta and Cobb County.

When: Friday, July 26, 2019 starting at 10:30am
Where: Marietta Museum of History, 1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060
Cost: FREE but donations are greatly appreciated!  If you would like to tour the Museum before or after the event, the cost is $5 per person.
