Bordering the historic Oakland Cemetery, Cabbagetown was constructed as a mill town in 1881 around what was one of the first textile processing mills built in the South. After the mill closed in 1977, the area was greatly overlooked until the early 1990s, when it was revitalized with the arrival of inspired artists and musicians. The mill itself is now known as the Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts, the nation's largest residential loft community.

Key Features

Neighborhood Feel: Cabbagetown consists of both a variety of early 1900 lofts, townhomes, mill cottages, bungalows, and new construction lofts and condos.

With street art that attracts photographers from both Atlanta and neighboring areas, award-winning restaurants, and cute local shops, Cabbagetown is as eclectic as it is convenient.

Nest Picks

Cabbagetown Park

Cabbagetown Park is a gorgeous and dog-friendly area with rolling green space. Each November, the neighborhood hosts its own Chomp and Stomp Bluegrass Festival in the park, where local restaurants compete in a chili cook-off amid the backdrop of live music.

The Stacks

In 1881 the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill was built, and Fulton Mill Village sprung up around it. In 1996, the mill was converted into lofts, now known as the Stacks at Historic Cotton Mill Lofts, and the village now goes by a more familiar name: Cabbagetown. Today, it is a favorite of the movie industry and residents alike for its iconic architecture and stunning city views.

Carroll Street Cafe is a local favorite for brunch or dinner. Walkable or bikeable from Cabbagetown and adjacent neighborhoods, this bohemian café with a European flair is a must-try.
