Reynoldstown

Reynoldstown

Reynoldstown was one of the first African American neighborhoods in Atlanta, established by a handful of formerly enslaved families. The neighborhood became a hub for displaced African Americans migrating to the city, many of whom ended up working for the railroad at the northern border of the neighborhood. Reynoldstown has a strong community spirit, a wheelbarrow festival, and a restaurant that employs a live xylophone player on Sunday mornings. While some of the newer houses haven’t helped, the blue collar, country roots of Reynoldstown remain firmly in place today.
