The oldest house in downtown Marietta, the c. 1845 William Root House was one of the only wood frame structures in Marietta to survive the Civil War. The house was owned by Marietta's first druggist, William Root. He opened his drug store on Marietta Square in 1839. He grew many medicinal plants in his garden, including hops, which would have been used to assist with sleeplessness and anxiety.
Red Hare Brewing Company is an independent microbrewery located in Marietta. In August 2011, Red Hare started selling craft beer throughout the state of Georgia. Now situated in an 15,000 square foot warehouse, the company has a 40 barrel, three vessel brewhouse.
