Reynoldstown is a tight-knit community with a rich history and interesting architecture. Walking down the street you will notice the full renovations of historic Victorians next to trendy lofts near the Krog Street Tunnel. There is even more development coming to the area, as Reynoldstown is considered one of Atlanta’s most promising neighborhoods.
Originally settled after the American Civil War by freed slaves who were employed by the railroad, Reynoldstown has had its share of booms and a variety of assorted home styles to show for it, including shotgun houses, modernist homes, Georgian cottages, and many 1930’s- 1940’s bungalows. Many homes are close together with small yards, giving the neighborhood extreme walkability. There are also several newer condos and lofts that have been added to the market recently. Prices are affordable, and the variety of home styles offer buyers a lot of flexibility.
As a neighborhood on the east side of Atlanta, Reynoldstown residents share many of the same eclectic amenities as their Cabbagetown neighbors, such as Carroll Street, Cabbagetown Park, The BeltLine, the Eastside Hiking Trail and local retail establishments. In addition, CRiSP (Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown Security Patrol) was founded by proactive residents who work together to make the community safer and improve the overall quality of life for residents. This community also borders the Edgewood Retail District, giving residents extreme proximity for a variety of shopping and dining options. In late 2016, a new mixed-use development is projected to be completed for the neighborhood, adding 16,000 square feet of street retail space, with about half planned for new dining establishments. Furthermore, there are plans to add an outdoor bistro to Gateway Park, the unofficial entrance to Reynoldstown.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district, Reynoldstown has many local landmarks including the Colgate Mattress Factory, Trees Atlanta headquarters, and the former Atlanta & West Point Railroad depot. Some of Atlanta’s most prominent attractions are a short drive away, including Zoo Atlanta, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum, and Oakland Cemetery.
