About Cabbagetown
This neighborhood is situated on the east side of the city, adjacent to the Oakland Cemetery. Cabbagetown encompasses the Cabbagetown District, which is a historic district listed in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The history of this neighborhood began when the Atlanta Rolling Mill was destroyed post the Battle of Atlanta. In 1881, the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill instead began their operations, and Cabbagetown was built around it. Like most mill towns, its streets are quite narrow with the blocks being short and having plenty of intersections. There are several stories of how the city got its name, with one version being that a car took a sharp turn at one of the intersections, flipped and spilled its load of cabbage onto the street. At the most, the mill provided jobs for around 2,600 people, and for a long time Cabbagetown was home to a tight-knit and isolated community. Sadly, the neighborhood went into a steep decline after the mill closed in 1977, but after the intown renaissance in the early 1990s, Cabbagetown underwent an equally sharp growth-spurt. Since 1996, the old mill has undergone renovation making it into America's largest residential loft community, called the Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts. The lofts are home to an eclectic mix of residents, ranging from artists and musicians to business professionals. Thanks to the influx of artists like Panorama Ray in the 1980s, Cabbagetown is known for its artistic community. Panorama Ray had a photo gallery on Carroll Street, which after his death became a popular restaurant spot where neighbors gather to socialize. The Krog Street Tunnel is another center-point, and comprises the city's foremost street art area. You'll find vibrant murals as well as tags and graffiti on the walls along Wylie Street, which is managed by the Wallkeepers Committee. A fun event to attend is the Chomp and Stomp festival in November, when the streets resound with chili and bluegrass. In addition, the festival now includes a 5K road-race with up to 16,000 onlookers and participants.
