Mableton

While Mableton is now unincorporated, it is one of Cobb County’s oldest identifiable areas. The community has a documented history from the early 19th century and was an area of Civil War activity in 1864 when Federal troops used the Mableton plantation as a camp. In recent years much residential activity has taken place due to its rediscovery as an area that is very close to major employment centers (downtown Atlanta, Cumberland-Galleria, Fulton Industrial Boulevard) and a quick commute into Atlanta for entertainment and activities.
