Acworth, A Georgia Main Street City

Acworth, Georgia, located about 35 miles northwest of Atlanta, exemplifies the quality of life most Americans dream of. While it is close enough to Atlanta to experience professional sports and cultural events equated with a larger city, the small-town atmosphere of Acworth provokes opportunities for families that offer fun and tranquility.

Convenient to both Interstate 75 and Highway 41, area hotels are comfortable and are run by community members. Visitors, whether in the mood for down-home southern cooking, a quick sandwich, spicy Cajun cuisine or parlor style ice cream, will find a wide range of choices.

Acworth is surrounded by two beautiful lakes (Lake Acworth and Lake Allatoona), which offer beaches for swimming, fishing, boating and camping opportunities. There are twelve parks that surround Acworth for picnicking. Nestled along the banks of Lake Acworth is Cobblestone Golf Course, which was recently rated the #1 public course in Georgia by Golf Digest. Whether the golf related outing is a company tournament, class or family reunion, Cobblestone is the perfect choice.

Shoppers will revel in the eclectic nature of Acworth's historical downtown district. The shops are diversified in their offerings, and you will always find friendly and welcoming staff at all of the shops.

If you are a history buff, you will certainly want to visit the many homes on the historical tour. A stroll through these tree-lined streets is like a stroll through history where treasured architecture has been preserved, a simpler, more tranquil life maintained, and a commitment to balancing the small town, yet progressive theme, unique to Acworth.

The Dixie Highway, "the granddaddy of Interstate 75," was the first interstate to reach into the south and is Acworth's Main Street, which was a part of the original Dixie route. By the time of its incorporation in 1840, Acworth prospered as a typical railroad town. Today, Acworth is designated as a Georgia Main Street city and is part of the Main Street America program. As a result, the city is committed to preserving the historical significance of its downtown district buildings.

Acworth's historical downtown

Acworth's historic downtown once served as the community's primary central business district, in the days before the automobile made possible the development of commercial strip centers and shopping malls which could be located farther from the core of the city.

Present day Main Street is located on what began as a trading route used by the Cherokee Indians, and by the 1920s, it had evolved into a major North-South thoroughfare known as the Dixie Highway (later replaced in the modern era by Highway 41 and Interstate 75).

Part of the historic area of the city is being considered for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places, an honorary designation given by the United States Department of the Interior. Acworth's downtown buildings still retain many of the architectural details commonly associated with commercial buildings constructed in the late nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, and serve as a physical reminder of a point in time when the downtown was the focus of small town life.
