What is Cabbagetown?
Cabbagetown is a historic neighborhood located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Cabbagetown developed around the Fulton Cotton and Bag Mill and has a strong Appalachian heritage. During the 80's and 90's Cabbagetown became home to many artists and musicians. During the 90's Cabbagetown, along with the rest of in-town Atlanta, experienced a re-newed interest in in-town living and restoration of the older homes. Today Cabbagetown is home to a wonderful mix of families, singles, young couples, artists, corporate executives, independent businesses, and several churches - all within a six block area.
