Marietta Square

99 S Park Square NE, Marietta, GA 30060, United States

 

The Marietta Square in downtown Marietta, GA, has something for everyone, whether you want to shop, eat, or be entertained. Pick up maps, information, and restaurant recommendations at the Welcome Center in the old train depot. You could even start your souvenir shopping in Marietta Square here.

Glover Park, located in the square's center, is a great place for picnics, photos, and playtime. Mayor John Glover donated the land in the nineteenth century with the condition that it be kept as a park or it would revert to his heirs. The park's centerpiece is a fountain, but children will flock to the train engine playground.

You'll find a variety of shops all around the park. The square is lined with unique gift shops, boutiques, antique shops, ice cream and candy shops, and a Brumby Rocker store.

An eclectic mix tempts your taste buds with over thirty Marietta Square restaurants, ranging from traditional American and Southwestern fare to BBQ, Australian, Thai, Vietnamese, Colombian, Greek, French, Italian, and Mediterranean cuisine. Desserts, bakery items, pizza, a brewery, and "spirits" are all close by. Many restaurants have outdoor seating, allowing you to people-watch while you eat.

The history of Marietta Square is abundant. The American Civil War's Great Locomotive Chase began here. Militia trained on the park during the Civil War, the area was used as a military hospital, and the buildings were later burned during Sherman's March to the Sea.

If you're interested in the history of the area, go to the Marietta Museum of History, which is located near the train tracks in the historic Kennesaw House (next to the Welcome Center). Photographs, artifacts, and information about Marietta and North Georgia are on display at the museum. This structure, which served as a hospital and morgue during the Civil War, is said to be haunted by up to 700 ghosts. Walking tours can also take you through the history of the Square. A walking tour itinerary is available at the Welcome Center.

Check out the tasting tour if you're interested in food. You could sign up for a Ghosts of Marietta tour if your tastes run to the "spooky."
