During the Civil War, Kennesaw was the home of the Great Locomotive Chase on April 12, 1862. An abundance of water and high ground adjacent to the railroad led to the construction of worker’s shanties near the present day Kennesaw, becoming known as “The Big Shanty”. During the American Civil War, Big Shanty was the site of major fighting in the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain.
Every April the annual Big Shanty Festival in Kennesaw displays over 200 arts and crafts booths along with 20 food booths. The festival brings roughly 60,000 people to Kennesaw each year. In 2008, the city of Kennesaw awarded a bid to Digital Wireless for the implementation of a city wireless internet. In March of 2008, the city of Kennesaw announced the grand opening of four wireless areas. This feature was one of its kind, making Kennesaw one of the first cities in the state of Georgia to provide this feature. Kennesaw made national news when the town passed an ordinance requiring the head of every household residing in the city limits to own a firearm and ammunition. Kennesaw is home to numerous attractions such as the 18 miles of trails wrapping around Kennesaw Mountain. Kennesaw State University is located in Kennesaw and continues to grow, recently adding a football program.
