The above map shows street art in both the Cabbagetown and Reynoldstown neighborhoods. Cabbagetown was originally a factory compound containing the manufacturing Complex and worker’s housing for the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill. The neighborhood got its name (or so one story goes) when a cabbage truck overturned spilling its contents out onto the street and the smell of cabbage cooking permeated the neighborhood for weeks.
After the Civil war Reynoldstown was settled by freed slaves who helped to rebuild Atlanta’s railroads. With the decline of the railroads in the 1950’s Reynoldstown also went into decline. In the 1990’s gentrification of the neighborhood began and today that trend is still going strong.
Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown is one of three Atlanta neighborhoods where an impressive amount of street art, spray art, murals and graffiti are highly concentrated in one easily walkable area. Tennelle Street / Wylie Street is one of the best street art viewing venues in Atlanta and we have the Forward Warrior project to thank for that. The murals are lined up for easy viewing along a wall that parallels the sidewalk.
The map markers listed in the table below the map will lead you on a self-guided street art walking tour. Just follow them in order starting with the first one immediately below the map. If you have a little extra time quite a few Inman Park murals are within a very short walk of the other end of the Krog Street Tunnel. Also check out the other two walking tours in the Little 5 Points and the East Atlanta Neighborhoods.
