Learn the Incredible Story Behind the Fulton Cotton Mill with This Historic Tour

Enjoy an incredible day full of interesting bits of Atlanta’s history on this exclusive tour of the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill building! This special event invites you to explore this historic site and learn all about its fascinating past with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. As one of the limited-time tours presented in partnership with the Atlanta Preservation Center, this exciting and free activity takes place on Wednesday, March 21st, so be sure to attend!

Dating from 1881, the historic complex built for the Fulton Cotton Spinning Company thrived until the mid-1970s. In 1995, the mill was converted to loft apartments using the federal preservation tax credit and is a superb example of the adaptive reuse of a historic mill complex. On this fascinating tour, you will learn about the Jewish history of the factory, how it gave rise to Cabbagetown and Georgia Tech, and details about the innovating rehabilitation project that helped preserve this incredible landmark. Tour guides Jeremy Katz from the Bremen Jewish Heritage Museum and historian/preservationist Lynn Speno will provide an interest narrative as you explore the complex, and you’ll even be joined by a special guest—loft resident Jake Elsas, a descendant of mill founder, Jacob Elsas. It is sure to be a wonderful day, so mark your calendar for the Fulton Cotton Mill Lofts Tour!

Even though Augusta Commons Apartments in Marietta, Georgia provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
