How do I know if I live inside the City Limits?
There is a difference in having an Acworth mailing address and living inside the city limits of Acworth. The Acworth mailing address can be found in Cobb, Cherokee, Paulding, and Bartow Counties. Having an Acworth mailing address does not mean you live in the city limits of Acworth. City of Acworth residents live in Cobb County only. The mailing addresses are decided by the federal government, not the City of Acworth. There are even some City of Acworth Residents who have a Kennesaw Mailing address. The best way you can find out if you are a city resident is to view the map below:
