The original structures which housed the Marietta Paper Mills ~ incorporated in 1859 ~ stood 1/4 mile down stream from Paper Mill Road. The mills manufactured news print, wrapping paper and stationery ~ a pioneer enterprise in this section of the state.

July 5, 1864. The mills were burned by a detachment of Gen. Kenner Garrard's cavalry division while guarding the left flank of Federal forces preparing to cross the Chattahoochee River at the mouth of Soap Creek. Rebuilt after the war, the mills burned in 1870. Restored in 1871, they operated until 1902.
