For those of you who are already familiar with Cabbagetown this doesn't come as a suprise. If you haven't even heard of this hip, eclectic Atlanta neighborhood, you've come to the right place!
Cabbagetown was founded by Jacob Elsas in 1884 and originally consisted of the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill and houses for the workers. The story is that the entire family would go to work at the Mill and because of that, no one was home to cook dinner. The Cabbagetown residents started boiling cabbage all day so it would be ready when they came home from work that evening. The streets smelled of cabbage, hence the name!
Today Cabbagetown is home to a wonderful mix of families, singles, young couples, artists, and corporate executives. Home styles include row houses along the popular Carroll Street, as well as shotgun houses, bungalows, and a few Victorian / Farmhouse style homes. Lofts are growing in number -- including the old Cotton Mill -- as well as eclectic shops and some FANTASTIC restaurants.
