    Why you'd want to live in Acworth

    Like the rest of Cobb County, the area now containing Acworth was carved out of the former Cherokee Nation in 1831, after expelling the natives. The Western and Atlantic Railroad was completed through town in 1840. A watering station for the locomotives was established there. The town received its current name in 1843 from Western & Atlantic Railroad engineer Joseph L. Gregg, who named it for his hometown of Acworth, New Hampshire, which was named for the former Royal Navy Surveyor Sir Jacob Acworth. Telegraph lines reached the town in 1851. Acworth was incorporated on December 1, 1860. Volunteers to fight in the Civil War enlisted in what became Company A ("Acworth Infantry") in the 18th Georgia Volunteer Infantry and Company C ("Invincibles") in the 41st Georgia Volunteer Infantry. The town was captured by the Union June 6, 1864. The city was called "Little Shanty" by the Union troops, to contrast it with the next town south, "Big Shanty", since renamed Kennesaw. The town was under martial law during the six months of occupation. On November 13, 1864, the town was burned down by the army of General W. T. Sherman, sparing twelve homes and one church; its citizens were left destitute. The town had nearly recovered by the 1880s. Cotton farming in the area peaked from the 1890s through the 1920s. Low prices during the Great Depression resulted in a cessation of cotton farming in the area and throughout Cobb County. The median income for a household in the city was $50,918, and the median income for a family was $55,163. The per capita income for the city was $21,956. Estimated median household income in 2008: $61,560(it was $50,918 in 2000) Acworth: $61,560 Georgia: $50,861 via Wikipedia
