Cabbagetown in Atlanta, GA is a historic neighborhood that traces its roots to the late 19th century. Originally a mill town built to provide housing for Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill workers, Atlanta's Cabbagetown went into a brief decline after the century-old cotton mill closed in 1977. But the 1990s heralded numerous renovations for the area — including the conversion of the Cabbagetown cotton mill into loft apartments — and Cabbagetown's future as a desirable place to live seemed assured.
Today, Cabbagetown is home to beautifully restored bungalows, charming restaurants and local arts shops. Annual events hosted in Cabbagetown in Atlanta, Georiga, include the Cabbagetown Reunion Festival (June) and the Cabbagetown Chomp & Stomp Chili Cook-off and Festival (November).
Cabbagetown in Atlanta is located within a six-block, just east of downtown Atlanta, and the Historic Oakland Cemetery is located a few blocks west of Cabbagetown.
