MARIETTA - On Friday, March 23, 2018, the Marietta Museum of History continues its popular monthly program, the Remember When Club.  The 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 month and it encourages the audience to participate by sharing their memories as well.  Do you remember Kennesaw State University when there were only 1,000 students? Or Southern Polytechnic when it was a part of GA Tech? This month, our panel will discuss the early days of our public higher education institutions.

Panelists will include Dr. Steve Cheshier from Southern Polytechnic, Dr. Ron Delaney from Chattahoochee Tech and Dr. Nancy King & Dr. Tom Scott from KSU.

This event is held the 4th Friday of every month through October in the first Floor Virginia Tumlin Room at 10:30am. If you have a topic that you think would be good for the club or know of a person who could speak on our upcoming topic(s), please contact Museum staff at 770-794-5710 or info@mariettahistory.org

When: Friday, March 23, 2018 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.
