Cobb County was created in 1832 by the Georgia state legislature.

Cobb County is named in honor of Thomas Willis Cobb who was a Georgia legislator and Senator in the early 19th century. The county seat of Cobb County is Marietta.

Because of Cobb's urban and suburban settings and the large number of major interstates, highways and surface streets, Cobb County residents are susceptible to being victims in tractor trailer accidents and auto accidents. As such, Cobb County cities and unincorporated areas can be dangerous for drivers. Moreover, the proximity of Lake Allatoona results in Cobb having some of the highest numbers of boating accidents of any county in Georgia. DUI boaters are a big problem at Allatoona, the Chattahoochee River and other Cobb County waterways.
