Historic Markers

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners initiated the creation of a Historic Marker Program in Cobb County in 2005 and set aside $50,000 for the program. The purpose of the program is to highlight historic sites around the county.

The Cobb County Historic Preservation Commission created a prioritized list of sites, which included a wide variety of types and locations. The following markers have been completed.
