Living in a House for Rent in Kennesaw, GA

Kennesaw is a suburb with many homes for rent located about 30 miles northwest of Atlanta. It was a primary spot on General Sherman's March to the Sea. Kennesaw's original name was Big Shanty, and during the Civil War, Big Shanty was the site of the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. It later served as a supply headquarters after it fell to Sherman. The battle is now commemorated through Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. In addition to viewing the history of the battle, visitors can experience the mountain itself, which is the highest point in the Atlanta area. Kennesaw, which gained its current name and was incorporated in 1887, further acknowledges its history through the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History.
