About the Marietta History Center
The Marietta History Center, located in the historic Kennesaw House building, has been open since 1996. The exhibits are on the second floor of the building.
The MHC website describes the history of the building (paraphrased below):
Originally built as a cotton warehouse by John Glover in 1845, the building was remodeled by Dix Fletcher to become the Fletcher House Hotel in 1855.
During the Civil War the hotel temporarily served as a makeshift hospital and morgue. For this reason, the building has become the subject of many stories and local ghost folklore. This notoriety has led to appearances on CNN, The History Channel and PBS.
The building was originally four stories high, but the top floor caught fire during the Civil War and was never rebuilt.
The Marietta History Center is located at 1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060, adjacent to Marietta Square.
