This building has always been a landmark to the city of Marietta. It was built as a Federal Post Office, and then served as the Cobb County Library central office for almost 30 years. In 1990, it became the home to the Marietta-Cobb Museum of Art.
A two-story addition was built at the rear of the building to accommodate the Library and the demands of the county's tremendous growth. The Museum has renovated the building preserving the architectural integrity. The original marble, hardwood and wrought iron throughout the building have been restored to recapture buildings original ambiance of grandeur. The Museum is an independent organization dedicated to fostering and presenting visual arts to the community. It provides programs of local, regional and national importance.
