History of Acworth, Georgia, Presentation

We went to the Marietta Museum of History tonight to see an excellent presentation of  the History of Acworth, Georgia by Davis McCollum (O.M.). He is an O.A. too.

Did you know the area of Acworth used to be called Northcutt Station?   A Mr. Northcutt was the depot master there, so it was named after him.  Before that it was Little Shanty.

And of course Big Shanty was Kennesaw.  Which brings up the fact that Big Shanty/Kennesaw  was at one time called Moon Station because the train depot master there was a Mr.Moon.

Davis had plenty of stories and  old pictures of Acworth in his slide presentation and also progress of the city and still trying to retain the old landmark houses and buildings.

I did not get to take any pictures during the presentation because the room was too  dark for the slide show.  And after that was over I could either sample the many little finger foods or take pictures.... guess which I chose.

The pictures you see here are pictures I took before and after outside the Kennesaw House.
