Just east of Oakland Cemetery, Cabbagetown is one of Atlanta’s most unique neighborhoods. Its mill town origin lends itself to narrow streets and shot-gun style homes with little or no yard. Don’t expect a driveway in these parts!
**Rumor has it that a cabbage cart tipped some many years ago and they were unable to transport the load. The area smelled like cabbage for days, giving the neighborhood its name.
Today, Cabbagetown has become a popular home for artists, musicians, activists and other renaissance-makers who have gravitated toward the affordable, history-rich community to establish galleries, coffee houses, non-profits and add their calling cards to the layers of graffiti bedecking the Krog Tunnel. Carroll Street offers the neighborhood gathering point for coffee, restaurants, pubs and, of course, your local tattoo parlor.
