The Mable House
Atlanta
Robert Mable (1803-1885), a native of Scotland, immigrated to Savannah, Georgia. When he heard of the Georgia Gold Land Lottery of 1832, he purchased 300 acres in the area that became Cobb County. He and his family lived in a log cabin until 1843 when he built a sawmill and began construction of a plantation plain house. Upon moving into the Mable House, the cabin became the location of the first school (private) in Mableton. The Mable House was used by Federal troops during the Civil War as a field hospital. Wounded soldiers were cared for by Mrs. Mable. This kindness was the basis for the decision to leave the Mable House intact instead of burning the house and outbuildings.

More About Atlanta

Capital and largest city in Georgia, Atlanta is known the world over for its parks, professional sports teams, shopping, museums, and entertainment. One of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Atlanta has been commended by the Environmental Protection Agency for its determination to implement ecologically friendly policies. Unlike many other Southern cities, Atlanta broke with its historic Old South architectural characteristics and opted for a progressive modern style led by native Atlantan John Portman, who created the atrium hotel in 1967 when he designed the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
