The Marietta Train Depot was originally built in 1864 or the Western and Atlantic Railroad, a railroad between Chattanooga, Tennessee and Atlanta, Georgia. The railroad was absorbed by the Nashville, Chattanooga and St. Louis Railway. In turn, the latter railroad was merged into the Louisville and Nashville Railroad in 1957.
The station was burned down by the Union troops of Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman in the latter years of the US. Civil War. This version of the station was rebuilt in 1898. Today it is the Marietta Welcome Center and Visitors Bureau.
The stations borders the Marietta square where you can find great places to eat, shop and spend time in the square. Check out downtown Marietta, you will not be disappointed.
