This old 1868 farm house was the home of the Groggens family and then the Crooks family. In 1975 until 2000, it was turned into a restaurant and was known as the Marietta Cupboard. From August 2000 and until 2004, it was known as The Back Porch Bar & Grill. From 2005 to the present, it became NIKS PLACE serving authentic Greek food.
This old house is one of the few historic homes in Marietta operating as a business outside the Square. To some it is a reminder of a bygone era in today's corporate world. As for me, being a newcomer to Marietta (since 1994) and coming from a real ancient city as Athens Greece, I have learned to appreciate and admire the craftsmanship of the past. I love the history, nostalgia, and character this old house offers.
