Cobb County Cultural Landscape Field Study

design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Residential Housing
Housing in Cobb County comes in many different forms. You will be seeing bungalow, ranch, and irregular massed style homes.
Ethnic, Southern cuisine is what makes up the heart of the South.
Monuments in Cobb County usually serve very important purposes. They can represent the people that have influenced Cobb, or they can represent the Civil War.
Religious Institutions
Georgia is in the Bible Belt, and we can see why. There are 309 and counting churches in Cobb County alone; and if you look around a corner there's probably a sign that says "Church Coming Soon."
iMovie & Interviews
A bungalow is a one and a half story house that usually sits on a narrow lot and is more deep than wide. This photo was taken on Main St. In Marietta.
An irregular massed home is either in the shape of a L or a T. This home is L shaped and was taken in Marietta, GA
Irregular Massed
A ranch home is one story tall and sits on a large lot. It can possibly have a picket fence. This was taken on Whitlock Avenue in Marieta.

Buildings in Cobb County can be used for many unique purposes. Theaters, convention centers and concert venues are just some examples.
Placelessness is defined as the loss of uniqueness in the cultural landscape. This means that there are a lot of one shop and they all look alike.
This bell was dedicated to the citizens and members of Cobb County that assisted in the Glover Park Restoration
At the cemetery we saw a monument standing for all the fallen soldiers. We learned about cemeteries in class and how they are such a big deal here. Americans are very elaborate when it comes to funerals and that was evident from this monument.
Marietta Cemetery
In Marietta Square, there were plenty of antique shops to choose from. Some of them, like Dupre's, have antiques from the early 1800's.
