Atlanta’s Goat Farm Arts Center steeped in history

by The 100 Companies

The Goat Farm Arts Center, previously known as the Van Winkle Gin and Machinery Works, has a rich history in Atlanta. Located just west of Atlantic Station, the complex was built in 1889 and was known as one of the largest industrial complexes in the South. Until 1944, the company manufactured the cotton press, supplying cotton gins to approximately half the world market.

In World War II, the building was used as a munitions factory, supplying troops with equipment at the frontlines. Today, the 12-acre lot with studios and loft spaces serves as a community for various types of artists.
