More About Hotels near Sweat Mountain...

Antenna Farm on top of Sweat Mountain

Though Kennesaw Mountain serves as the highest peak in the county, both Kennesaw and Stone Mountain are protected parks. This makes Sweat Mountain the logical place for radio transmitters, towers, and antennas for amateur radio, cellphones, broadcasting, and pagers to be installed. In fact, this huge antenna farm in conjunction with the many houses in the area, ruin the view of the mountain from surrounding locations including southeast Cherokee, northeast Cobb, and western Roswell. This, of course, means that views from the hotels in these areas also suffer.

Historical Points Regarding the Sweat Mountain Area

A lake off Mountain Road served as a meeting place for a musical festival held back in the early 1970s.

Though it did much worse damage to nearby areas, in 2006 a F1 tornado grazed the South side of Sweat Mountain causing some minor damage to surrounding homes.

The Mountain View Area

The Mountain View Area received its name because of the view it has of Sweat Mountain. The name has also been applied to the Cobb County Public Library System's Mountain View Library, the Mountain View Aquatics Center, the Chattahoochee Tech Mountain View Campus, and the Mountain View Elementary School.

Development of the Area

In the 1990s the community grew from a forest into strip malls and parking lots. The original center of the town (the intersection of Sandy Plains Road and Shallowford Road) transformed from two-lane streets to four-lane divided arterial highways.

Gordy Parkway rose up as a near-circle community with hundreds of homes west of Sandy Plains Road. The Frank Gordy family, owner of The Varsity, owned most of the land in this area. They donated to the county part of the property where now sits the one-building Chattahoochee tech campus and the state technical college.

Through the years, three of the original stores in the area changed occupants. Kmart became the Home Depot, the Drug Emporium became the Office Depot, and Harris Teeter is now a Kroger. Land development has also led to a multi-screen movie theater.
