The City of Kennesaw has emerged as an important business and cultural hub for Atlanta's northern suburbs, conveniently located along the I-75 and US-41 corridors.  Steeped in history and tradition, it is also a vibrant, progressive community with pictuesque streets and abundant greenspace. Downtown is just minutes from McCollum Field, a business-class airport serving general aviation.  With excellent academic options, outstanding, family-oriented recreational activities and facilities and one of the lowest crime rates in the metropolitan area, Kennesaw is a city offering an ideal environment for business and industry.
