Acworth Real Estate & Homes in Georgia
Home to approximately 20,000 residents, the scenic and charming town of Acworth is one of Georgia's best-kept secrets. Located 30 miles northwest of Atlanta in Cobb County at the intersection of I-75 and US 41, this community is close enough to the big city to enjoy all of its benefits while maintaining a small town atmosphere.
Acworth is located in four different counties: Cherokee, Cobb, Paulding and Bartow. Acworth is also Cobb County's only designated Main Street City. Lovely Victorian homes can be found along tree-lined streets in quiet residential neighborhoods. These homes include fabulous single-family homes, stunning estates, comfortable townhouses, spacious condominiums, and land parcels for custom development.
Students in K-12 attend the highly esteemed schools of the Cobb County School District, Cherokee County School District, and Bartow County School District. Several distinguished colleges and universities are a short commute away.
With its mild climate and scenic location, Acworth provides plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Residents and visitors can hone their skills on one of the town's many challenging golf courses or enjoy a day of fishing, swimming and boating on Lake Acworth or Lake Allatoona. Lake Allatoona offers a respite from the rush of city living. More than 13 million visitors each year enjoy picnicking, camping, hunting, fishing, swimming and other water sports. Nature lovers, hunters and fisherman can take advantage of the wildlife that can be found in the clear waters of the lake and the forests that surround its shores.
The town's historic downtown district is filled with quaint antique shops, gift shops and galleries. Acworth's rich and diverse history is reflected in its many historic landmarks, including the Old City Jail, the Collins Avenue Historic District, the Cowan Farmstead and the Mills Ruins.
