Hyde Farm
721 Hyde Rd
Marietta, GA 30068
Located just off of Lower Roswell Road in East Cobb, Hyde Farm is a 135 acre farm that was in existence from the 1830s to 2009. The land, farm, and buildings have been preserved as an educational and recreational facility. Named “one of the great treasures of Cobb County” by Cobb County Commissioner Bob Ott, “the drive down scenic Hyde Road cannot prepare you for your journey back in time. As you walk along the terrace gardens past the old farmhouse, or drink from the working well, it is hard to imagine that just a short distance away is East Cobb. It is hard to imagine long ago when all of East Cobb was like Hyde.”
