Acworth, Georgia, was incorporated on December 1, 1860. Sources say it was named after Acworth, New Hampshire, by Joseph L. Gregg, an engineer for the Western & Atlantic Railroad. This delightful town has about 20,000 residents.
In November 1864, during the American Civil War, Acworth was burned down by the army of General W.T. Sherman, sparing only a few homes. Those visiting from above the Mason-Dixon Line, however, will be greeted warmly.
Acworth, like the other towns near Lake Allatoona, is a modern version of Mayberry. You’ll find Southern hospitality, ladies and gentlemen, rest and recreation, along with all the newfangled conveniences you expect.
Atlanta is nearby for those who hanker for the big city.
