Quirky, colorful and just a few miles east of downtown, Cabbagetown, Reynoldstown and Edgewood have blossomed in recent years. Thankfully, they haven’t lost the distinctly Southern flavor that reflects their rich history. Cabbagetown developed around the Fulton Cotton and Bag Mill, with roots in the working class community that worked at the Mill. During the 1980′s and 1990′s, it became home to many artists and musicians.
Reynoldstown, originally settled by freed slaves after the Civil War, features a haphazard maze of narrow streets and a diverse mix of older shotgun homes, new construction, and loft developments. The neighborhood features a coffee shop with its very own dog run, making it the de facto “center of the neighborhood”. Neighboring Edgewood is home to one of intown Atlanta’s retail hubs- the Edgewood Retail District- offering residents enjoy easy access to a wide variety of shopping in their backyard.
