Marietta Pilgrimage Tour
In light of the current conditions concerning COVID-19, the Marietta Visitors Bureau and Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, organizers of the Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Home Tour, have decided to transition this year’s tour to a self-guided walking tour featuring historic homes located in the Church-Cherokee Historic District.
The self-guided walking tour can be enjoyed any time in December. December 4th through 18th, tour-goers can cast their votes for the homes they think have the “Best Traditional Decor,” “Most Over-The-Top Decor,” and “Best Light Display." Each Marietta Pilgrimage Walking Tour Book will include a walking tour map, photos and information about the participating homes, as well as a scavenger hunt for young (and young at heart) tour-goers. The booklet will also include discounts and coupons from local Marietta restaurants and merchants.

The pandemic has created a hardship for nonprofits whose budgets rely on fundraising events like the Marietta Pilgrimage. Sales and donations from this year’s Pilgrimage will help Cobb Landmarks and the Marietta Welcome Center during this critical time. Learn more about these worthy nonprofit organizations below.
THE MARIETTA VISITORS BUREAU
The Marietta Visitors Bureau and Welcome Center was established in 1984 as part of the City of Marietta’s Sesquicentennial Celebration. As a private, non-profit organization, the Visitors Bureau strives to promote Marietta as a tourism destination for a wide range of visitors from cultural/heritage enthusiasts, families and fans traveling for sports & recreational fun, to business travelers seeking close proximity to Atlanta. The Marietta Welcome Center is located just off the Marietta Square in the 1898 Western & Atlantic Railroad Passenger Depot.
Since its founding in 1974, Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society has succeeded in preserving and protecting some of Cobb’s most historically relevant buildings. Each year, Cobb Landmarks provides engaging programs and activities that reach thousands of preservationists, tourists, educators, and students. Many of these programs are centered on the organization's two historic properties, the William Root House and the Power Family Cabin.
