A classic design with a historic name, Uncle Ruban reminds us of the way people moved around the city in the early 20th century. Marietta’s only trolley guides you throughout the historic city in style. From the traditional colors and park bench seating to the timeless clang…clang of the bell, join us for a trip back in time.
Civil War Tour
Step back to a time when Sherman marched down to the Marietta Square. This special Civil War Tour, done quarterly and for private reservations of 15 or more, takes you to Cheatham Hill, the site of the worst fighting on the Kennesaw Mountain Line. The soldiers who fought over this ground will tell you of the day’s events. The Confederate and National Cemeteries will be explored as you walk among the graves of the brave men who died around the Marietta area in 1863-1864. We will tell of the devastation to the town of Marietta and its people, as told in their personal account. Spend two and a half hours riding in comfort and enjoying the stories of Marietta’s Civil War History.
National Cemetery Walking Tour
In 1866, the reburials of the Union men who died in the Atlanta campaign were begun and placed on 23 acres of land east of Marietta. Today, the Marietta National Cemetery is a tapestry of American History, as every war America has fought in is represented in the cemetery. You will spend two hours walking the beautiful grounds of this cemetery to learn its history and stories of the many men and women buried within its walls. This is limited to groups of 10 or more.
Join us for one of our special walking tours. Celebrate Veteran’s Day with an evening candle-lantern walk starting at 5:30 pm. Then on December 12th after the Wreaths across America program’s placement of Christmas wreaths there will be an afternoon walking tour at 2:00 pm. This will be followed at 5:00 pm by an emotional evening candle-lantern walk with readings from original letters sent at Christmastime by the soldiers buried here.
