It is the largest of the principal cities of Georgia. The origin and meaning of the city's name are uncertain. Possibly named after Mary Cobb, wife of U.S.. Marietta was established by European Americans in 1823 as a trading post on the Chattahoochee River, which was part of an important Native American trail from north Georgia to Tennessee and Kentucky before Indian Removal in 1838-39. It later became a railroad town with two major rail lines intersecting near it (now CSX Transportation). Today Marietta has four bridges crossing over Interstate 75: Westover Street Bridge; South Marietta Parkway Bridge; East Roswell Street bridge; Cobb Viaduct (also known as Six Flags Over Georgia viaduct); all within one mile from each other. The population grew rapidly during this time period.
