Marietta Museum of History
Originally built as a cotton warehouse in 1845, the building was remodeled 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.
Today the museum houses galleries and exhibits featuring collections from General History, Home Life and Military.
The Marietta Museum of History is dedicated to preserving the history of Marietta and Cobb County by providing an educational, enlightening, and engaging experience. Join us in preserving our past at the Marietta Museum of History!
