Kennesaw owes its beginnings to the Western Atlantic Railroad that was built in the area in the early 19th century when Georgia's Legislature authorized the rail line through Cobb County, stretching from Atlanta to Cartersville. Along the route, one location became an obvious location to house workers for a variety of reasons. The community started as a shanty town and was originally called the Big Grade to the Shanties. That was in turn then shortened to Big Shanty Grade and then finally to Big Shanty. The name Kennesaw came about much later from the Cherokee Indian word for cemetery.
During the Civil War, Big Shanty soon rose to prominence as its location, rail access and fresh water led to the decision to set up Camp McDonald nearby. This served as a training camp for Confederate soldiers. The rail provided easy access for supplies and arriving recruits. Eventually Big Shanty also served as a supply base.
Kennesaw's prosperity, after long periods of muted growth and epidemics of scarlet fever and smallpox, came in the early 1900s when cotton provided the city with increasing revenue. The new economic engine resulted in stores and banks opening. The prosperity lasted till the 1950s when the last of the cotton gins shuttered and the banks closed.
