Just north of Avondale Estates, Scottdale is a community that was named for Colonel George Washington Scott who founded the Scottdale Cotton Mill just off East Ponce de Leon Avenue in the late 1800s. The cotton mill development included housing built for workers, many of which still stand today. After the closure of the mill in 1982, the area experienced an exodus as workers relocated elsewhere to find work. Tobie Grant, a philanthropist, donated several acres of land to disenfranchised and unemployed African Americans. The area now features a park, a library, and a recreation center. Today, the mill is home to the East Ponce Industrial Arts Building, a series of artist studios.
Scottdale is home to the Steel LLC, a steel fabricator positioned near the intersection of North Clarendon Avenue and East Ponce de Leon Avenue. The area features access to Clarkston, Decatur and Avondale Estates via thoroughfares and the Path which leads all the way to Stone Mountain. Southern Sweets Bakery, Mudfire Ceramics Studio, Radio Coffee Roasters, Your Dekalb Farmers Market, Beech Hollow Wildflower Farms, Heck House, and On Stage Atlanta all call Scottdale home,
