Sorry, I think Sweat Mountain is off - if Sweat Mountain park is close to Sweat Mountain, that is. If you go to Google Maps and enter "sweat mountain park,marietta,ga" you can see it's southwest of where you have it.

No. See the kind of large blank white area without road/streets near the Cherokee line? That is Sweat Mountain. Trust me, Rainy.



Other info...

"East Marietta" is around the area where Terrell Mill Road, Lower Roswell Road, and Paper Mill Road meet.


Don't mean to work you, rc...just giving more info! The map is fantastic...and will be very informative and helpful for residents and newcomers.

Oh very sorry Aries, I do trust you but I checked as well. I was misled by an habitual tendency to think 92 runs straight East-West but as you are doubtless perfectly well aware, it does not at all.

I found this great Wikipedia article on Sweat Mountain Sweat Mountain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, which I now realize is that big hill (sorry, I'm from British Columbia, anything that's not snow-capped year 'round is a hill to me) with all the communications equipment on top. Wow, it's taller than Stone Mountain! And according to the article, the area around Sandy Plains and Shallowford just went from forest to houses and shopping in the 90s. It's hard to grasp how rapidly metro Atlanta expanded, even though I can see that development along 92 has filled in really a lot since we moved here in 2002.

It's funny how you thought Sweat Mountain was a big hill...you really are West Coast!

I remember when they were building Highland Pointe in the late 80's and early 90's.

Hwy 92 and Cherokee in general...you don't even know. In the 80's (and early 90's) to us East Cobbers...the Cherokee line was like the end of the earth.


More...the Highland Plaza/Sandy Plains Centre mega-commercial district...all woods until 1992!

We use to play in the woods where the Target is located. We would walk to the graveyard in the middle of the woods (Mount Beulah Cemetery...check it out).

There is so much I could tell you how East Cobb has changed since/as I was growing up.

The funny thing is that everyone really thought East Cobb was done in 1989. Nope...they still found more land. Something you will often hear from old and somewhat-old East Cobbers...:"They're building houses now where I didn't even know there was land!"

Aries, thanks for sharing those memories. Wow! So much change. I'll look out for the Mt Beulah cemetary.

Default Why Cobb

Nice county, but if you have no jobs yet, you might consider others, like Forsyth which offer lower taxes, more greenspace, excellent NEW schools, and and and...

Let's start with the tax situation, check out THIS comparison.
