The History of Cabbagetown
Ga. State University department of Anthropology and Geography published an article about the History of Cabbagetown which will tell you all you ever wanted to know about the neighborhood.
The mill was in ruins for years and was recently renovated and converted into an upscale loft development The Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts
Cabbagetown is very convenient to Grant Park, Inman Park and downtown. The homes were mostly either shotgun type or two story wood frame. There is a scattering of larger bungalows and quite a bit of new infill homes with a historic feel.
The railroad tracks run behind the original mill building (naturally) and much of the industrial properties along the rail line have either gone through extensive renovation into residential lofts or have been torn down to make way for brick and iron large classic new construction lofts.
Cabbagetown is a neighborhood just south of the Old Fourth Ward and the Martin Luther King Center and it is just east of the historic Oakland Cemetery. It is due east of downtown just south of the Marta rail. The neighborhood was built for the employees of the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill in 1881.
