seems unscathed from the OTP and ITP battle, and it defies all things assumed about Cobb County. People who swear they'll never leave Midtown drive to catch shows at Theatre in the Square. Then they stick around to get a bite to eat at one of the numerous international restaurants located around Glover Park. The Square continues to attract locals seeking a more metropolitan flavor with its coffee shops and galleries. But the "Square" extends beyond the park center with antebellum homes that conjure the Old South and the 1909 Post Office that houses the Marietta/ Cobb Museum of Art. And you don't even have to think about finding Marietta's other main attraction -- the Big Chicken.
