Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park

900 Kennesaw Mountain Dr, Kennesaw, GA 30152

Kennesaw Battlefield Park preserves a Civil War battleground of the Atlanta Campaign, and also contains Kennesaw Mountain. It is located between Marietta and Kennesaw, Georgia. There are three battlefield areas: In front of the Visitor Center, off Burnt Hickory Road and a major site at Cheatham Hill (commonly known as the Dead Angle). At the southern tip of the park, Peter Valentine Kolb's farm house, where a minor battle was fought, has been restored to its original condition. The Visitor Center contains an information desk, museum, and a theater which screens movies about the battle fought there. The park has 17.3 miles of interpretive hiking trails, which allow visitors to see historic earthworks, cannon emplacements, and various interpretive signs.
