Located on the south side of west Cobb County, Georgia, the Mableton community includes over 30,000 residents and 20 square miles. Mableton was named after Robert Mable, who purchased 300 acres of land in the area on September 11, 1843. In 1881, the Southern Railway opened a train station in Mableton and one year later, a post office opened. The City of Mableton was incorporated on August 19, 1912, and four short years later the city was un-incorporated. Mableton continues to gain popularity due to it’s proximity to Interstate 285, Vinings, Buckhead, and Downtown Atlanta. Mableton also enjoys a lower tax rate than neighboring Fulton County and Atlanta. In addition, affordable housing and plenty of space make Mableton an attractive location for those looking for real estate close to the city of Atlanta but within the acclaimed Cobb County school district.
