Mableton is an unincorporated community in Cobb County, Georgia. The area is named after Robert Mable, who bought 300 acres in 1843. In 1912, the City of Mableton was officially incorporated, but just four years later, it was disincorporated.
The area has a population of around 40,000 people, and it’s currently the largest unincorporated area in Metro Atlanta after Brookhaven officially became a city in 2012.
There is increasing interest in the Mableton community because of its proximity to other towns in the Metro Atlanta area, such as Vinings, Buckhead, and Downtown Atlanta. Citizens in Mableton have easy access to surrounding areas thanks to the East-West Connector, Mableton Parkway, and Veterans’ Memorial Highway. All these major roads run through the area and connect Mableton with Atlanta. This allows residents to enjoy a quiet life in the community while still having easy access to amenities in the bigger cities.
Moreover, residents in Mableton have a lower tax rate than neighboring countries. Real estate in the area offers plenty of space and affordable housing options for newcomers who wish to remain close to the city of Atlanta.
