East Cobb History
Cobb County was formed in 1832 as an outgrowth of Cherokee County. The area was largely occupied by Native American tribes such as the Cherokee, Woodland and Creek when small communities such as Mt. Bethel, Shallowford Falls and Westoak were formed. Cobb suffered two major blows in Sherman’s Atlanta Campaign during the Civil War with attacks on both Roswell Mill and Marietta Paper Mill. The area began to become developed as a suburb of Atlanta in the 1960s and has remained unincorporated since.
