The Marietta Educational Garden Center’s historic antebellum home, Fair Oaks c. 1850, is located on Kennesaw Avenue in the Historic District of Marietta. It is home to over 20 Marietta Garden Clubs and the Junior League of Cobb-Marietta. The venue is also used by many other civic organizations and rented out for special events. 

City Club Marietta, another significant historical property in our community, represents an integral part of Marietta’s heritage. As stated in the book Marietta Revisited, “The original Marietta Country Club site on Powder Springs St. was the location of the Georgia Military Institute before the Civil War. After the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, it was a hospital and Union cavalry staging area before being burned by Sherman.”
