One of the first African-American communities in Atlanta, this community was home to a number of formerly enslaved people who sought employment with the Georgia Railroad which runs through the area. Development of Reynoldstown began in the 1860s near what is now the BeltLine along Wylie Street. By 1870 the community officially became known as Reynoldstown, and the area featured small storefronts amid shotgun style homes. When a trolley system was implemented in the area in the 1880s this enhanced the walkability and accessibility from this neighborhood into downtown. As a result, more white middle-class families began moving to the area around the turn of the century.
Today, Reynoldstown has retained much of its character as seen in the still-standing Isaiah P. Reynolds store on Wylie and a number of historic homes. New construction, duplexes, and condominiums have brought even more density to this sought-after community, with access to the BeltLine and adjacent neighborhoods enhancing its walkability and appeal.
Reynoldstown is located between Moreland Avenue and Cabbagetown, and is bordered by Wylie Street and the CSX train lines on the north and Memorial Drive to the south. Just a short drive down Memorial is the Atlanta Dairies and Madison Yards development which boasts grocery stores, a movie theater, restaurants, and more.
