Cabbage Town

Known as "milltown" for many of Atlanta's early blue collar workers. The cotton mill was in operation for almost a 100 years. In the early 1970's the mill shut down and Cabbagetown deteriorated. Like many areas hit hard by economic decline, crime, drugs, and neglected properties became common. But as in other areas of Atlanta, adventurous young people saw hope for the historical neighborhood and began moving in, renovating, and turning the area into an eclectic, artsy, up and coming area. Now lofts and other new housing developments dot the community, and restaurants and local artists shops are growing in numbers. In 1999, you may remember seeing a dramatic crane rescue by Atlanta firefighter Matt Mosely, from the inferno that engulfed the cotton mill, which was being turned into lofts. A strong community bond formed during this tragedy, and still continues to thrive today. 


Centered on the Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts next to Oakland Cemetery this neighborhood is an interesting mix of artists, resturants, and historic homes.  There is a vibrant feel to this unique neighborhood of Atlanta.
