Today, the mill itself has been renovated into the nation’s largest residential loft complex and the neighborhood hosts an annual festival – Cabbagetown Chomp & Stomp – in honor of its founders’ Appalachian Heritage. Thousands invade the streets around Cabbagetown Park for the day as they sample a number of different chilis, enjoy their share of beverages, and listen to live music.
Atlanta’s Cabbagetown is a six-block historic neighborhood which was originally developed in 1881 after the operations began at the Fulton Cotton and Bag Mill. After the closing of the mill, musicians and artists revitalized Cabbagetown during the 80's and 90's to create an eclectic community of shotgun houses, art galleries and one-off eateries. The Krog Tunnel spotlights a constantly morphing collection of work by up-and-coming graffiti and mural artists from around the region.
