About
The Patch Works Art & History Center is a unique, community-based, nonprofit charity operating in Cabbagetown, Atlanta. The organization is dedicated to preserving, sustaining, and maintaining the historical identity of Atlanta's Cabbagetown through exhibits of history, local art, and community-based public programs and events. Due to the pandemic, the brick-and-mortar museum will be closed until further notice. Nonetheless, The Patch Works is revamping its website in order to create a virtual experience similar to its museum. The updated site will offer — among other things — self-guided walking tours, exhibits, live streaming events, music performances, and educational workshops. Please contact us if you wish to know more about what The Patch Works will be offering during this temporary closure.

Cabbagetown and Fulton Cotton Mill Tour
May 2019 • Family
Excellent, in depth tour of the present and history of Carroll St., Cabbagetown, and the former Fulton Cotton Mill and current condo / apartment community. Tour included an introduction of the area in the Patch Works history center a block down from the mill. Nina and Jake are informative - and a descendant of the mill founder - about the history and current state of the area. We learned a lot. Saw a lot. And even met a few of the locals that give this neighborhood much of this character. A couple of hours well spent.

Wonderful experience! I came with a group of friends to take a tour of the museum and neighborhood. We meet artists and other locals and toured the historic area. It was facinatig and many in my group can't wait to come back.

History, art, music, and local culture all in one place.

Excellent experience. We went here yesterday and we totally loved it. First, it's in the historical, funky Cabbagetown, a local, hidden jewel of a neighborhood. Just going there is wonderful. Next, the Patch Works Art & History Center is a delightful mix of culture and history encompassing many local treasures, such as artwork by our own Panorama Ray. Jake and Nina, the owners, are friendly and wonderful. They tell you all about all their treasures and then you get to walk to the old Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill and see how it's been converted into loft space while still preserving as much of the old factory space. There are music festivals that I have every intention of taking advantage off in the coming months. I highly encourage anyone who's looking for something creative and interesting to do in Atlanta to go. You can't possibly be disappointed.

Great owners, great information

My boyfriend and I stopped in when we saw a sign outside the building. We both love Cabbagetown and were eager to see what was inside. We were greeted by the two owners who were extremely kind and knowledgeable. They led us around the building while providing us with information about each exhibit. The pieces they have are in great condition. We will definitely be back! And likely on a Sunday as there are free bagels that day ;)

The museum is really great, quaint little place right smack in the middle of Cabbagetown. I never knew how fascinating this neighborhood was. It was really cool to learn about its history.

We took a walking tour with Jacob and Nina. What a great time! We learned a lot about both the history of Cabbagetown, and about contemporary Cabbagetown. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed going and Performing southern songs at this Museum a few weeks ago. It is a Hidden Gem in the Heart of the City walking distance from the historic Oakland Cemetery.

Two exemplary people who preserve the local culture and history of Atlanta
Jun 2018 • Family
Nina and Jacob are wonderful people. To introduce Cabbagetown and the history of Georgia and of course America, to prevent disappearance of the names of people who lived on this land, worked hard and built Georgia and thus America after Civil War, with the memories of passed away, they were founded this center by themselves. Be sure if you knock their door and say "Hello", you will not regret it.

This is a fun and well thought out historic museum. The displays replicate the personality and love in Cabbagetown. I especially enjoyed the porch which defines the architecture of this town.

Jacob and Nina Elsas / curators.....
Jun 2018 • Friends
I live in Alabama, and wanted to visit the Patch Works at Cabbagetown...because my Mother and grandparents lived there in the 30's. I was welcomed by Jacob and Nina Elsas, the curators of the History Center. I found them to be highly information and knowledgeable as well as knowing the community people very well. They are serious about there mission and what they are doing. in and for the community. They have a special outreach with the people living in Cabbagetown and offer many opportunities during the year, to not only gather oral histories but to continue the very FABRIC, this unique community was woven in, so many years ago. I will return and tell others !!!
