Established in 1887, Kennesaw offers the perfect combination of affordable housing, high-ranking schools and a thriving business center with large city amenities, all with a dose of small-town charm. Ideally situated just 20 miles northwest of Atlanta, Kennesaw is roughly bordered by the city of Acworth to the north and west, the city of Marietta to the south, and the community of East Cobb to the east. Best known as home to Kennesaw Mountain and the 2,965-acre Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, the area is also home to the third-largest university in Georgia - Kennesaw State. Neighborhoods in this idyllic suburban city range from dynamic new mixed-use developments to sprawling swim/tennis subdivisions and older homes on large multi-acre lots.
