Where Exactly is West Cobb?
Let’s start with the basics, Cobb County is North West of Atlanta, and considered part of the Atlanta Metro Area. Within Cobb there are 4 Quadrants. North Cobb, whose cities include Acworth, Kennesaw and Marietta. East Cobb, whose cities are Marietta, Roswell and a small portion of Woodstock. South Cobb which includes Marietta, Smyrna, Vinings, Mableton and Austell, and West Cobb which includes Marietta, Powder Springs, Kennesaw and some of Acworth.
Marietta is Central and the County Seat, and branches out in all directions from the Historic District and the Marietta Square.
Some long time Cobb residents may argue about which cities fall where, or whether there are distinctions between any regions besides East and West, but just as a guide and for our purposes We’ll be talking about the area North of Powder Springs Road, and West of Highway 41 (Cobb Parkway), ending up at the Paulding County Line.
As of this writing there is a move to Create a New City in part of unincorporated West Cobb, which would be the City of Lost Mountain. While the new city will have it’s own City Council and Mayor, the school system and Emergency Services will still be provided by Cobb County.
