The historical location of a major Civil War event, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park preserves the site of a battle fought between the Union and Confederate armies on June 18, 1864. Over 5,300 soldiers died during this battle, won against all odds by the vastly outnumbered Confederate forces. Designated as one of the country's historical districts in 1966, the park contains three major battlefield areas and a visitor center, where you’ll find a museum, theater, and information desk. Stop by the theater to watch short films about the battle, or walk some of the 27 km (17 mi) of interpretative hiking trails, which are lined with earthworks, cannon emplacements, and monuments dedicated to the soldiers who fought here.

  • This is a very nice visitors center, museum and gift shop. We had a person using a scooter in our little group, so we had an extra amount of interaction with our tour bus driver and he was so, so nice! This is a very nice visitors center, museum and gift shop. The musical entertainment really made our visit special. Thank you!
  • Great free attraction in Kennesaw! We love going here to hike and enjoy time outdoors. The hike is very fun and can easily be done in under an hour. Parking is limited so plan on parking in the overflow lot on Old 41. It adds about 10 minutes of walking, but it's free!
