Old Marietta (O.M.) Facebook Site

Funds to assist in the compilation and due diligence required to produce this historical and informational tool for the City of Marietta and surrounds. Also... the coffee and crawfish fund for the effort..!

Over 6,000 photos, documents and family connections shared with anyone that participates. Informative and interactive site that educates and celebrates our great historical story and community love. Not a non-profit, but a Community Educational collaboration put together by my love of the amazing past of Marietta has to offer, but not often studied or appreciated.

It is my intent and hope to provide readers multiple weekly stories and photos of our historic Marietta, GA and Cobb County from historical research and my past “lessons learned” in my 25 year role as a local lore collector. Now that my career has suddenly come to halt due to my recent health issue, I offer my knowledge and collection of stories, real family issues, connections and photos to share with the public through this.
