Historic House

The historic Mable House, ancestral home of the Mable family for whom Mableton was named, is an example of a plantation plain house constructed in 1843. It sits on the remaining 16 acres of the original 400+ acre farm and includes a kitchen house, corn crib, sweet potato house, storage barn, the family cemetery and the original smokehouse and well. It was used as a hospital during the Civil War and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The house has been restored its original 1890's status and has no running water. It is furnished with period furniture, some original to the Mable family and has one room filled with information about the family and the Mableton area.

Today the Mable House is on the National Register of Historic Places. The facility is under lease to the Cobb County Board of Commissioners and is operated as part of Cobb County PARKS.

The historic site comes alive when the Friends of the Mable House host school field trips and summer camps.
