Old Paper Mill is located next to Sope Creek Elementary School in East Cobb, in the Sope Creek, Dickerson, Walton School district. Mostly built in the 1980s, this swim and tennis community features an active home owner’s association, as well as a centrally-located playground.
The Marietta Paper Mill was built on the banks of Sope Creek as part of an industrial complex, near where it ends into the Chattahoochee River. Its ruins are still there, protected by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.Located in Cobb County, it is accessible via two-lane Paper Mill Road, which connects to nearby Johnson Ferry Road. In the west, the road briefly combines with Terrell Mill Road just before ending at Lower Roswell Road as Old Paper Mill Road. Paper Mill Road was carried over Sope Creek by a covered bridge, which was burned by arson in the late 1960s.
