Just East of Oakland Cemetery, Cabbagetown is a neighborhood of shotgun and cottage style homes surrounding the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill, which began operations in 1881. The Mill has been converted into Fulton Cottom Mill Lofts and demand for affordable housing in the in-town market has lead to a resurgence in popularity for the community.
The Krog Street Tunnel, which connects Cabbagetown and Inman Park, is the city’s centerpoint for street art and unofficial entrance to the neighborhood along the Beltline. The residents host several events throughout the year including the wildly popular Chomp and Stomp, a music festival and chili cook off. If you’re wondering about the name of the village, Creative Loafing offers some interesting history.
Carrol Street is a quint strip of restaurants including mainstay Carrol Street Cafe with newer spots like Petit Chou just blocks away. Plywood is a non-profit that leads a community of start-ups providing social entrepreneurs, creatives and non-profit leaders with content, curriculum and community as they launch and sustain.
