"Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place in museums; others, we take for walks." - Roger Caras
For people who love to travel, it's always a different fulfillment whenever they set foot in old historical places. It's like reliving the places that were featured in our history books during grade school.
Today, we highlight some of the historical places in Georgia that you can visit!
1581 Powder Springs Rd SW Marietta, GA 30064
The Battle of Kolb's Farm was fought on June 22, 1864, between Union forces under Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker and Confederate forces under Lt. Gen. John B. Hood. Hood attempted an attack on the Union force, but poor terrain conditions led to its failure. Much of the battlefield landscape has been altered and fragmented, some essential features remain.

Built as a cotton warehouse by John Glover in 1845, the Kennesaw House is one of Marietta’s oldest buildings. The Marietta Museum of History tells the stories of Marietta, established in 1996.
