The King Plow Arts Center is a commercial, performing, and visual arts center located on Marietta Street in the Marietta Street Artery district of West Midtown, Atlanta. King Plow is the largest center of its kind in the city. King Plow is also a popular music venue for concerts and live music shows in Atlanta.[1][2]

History

Terminal West

Prior to the construction of the current building in 1902, the Walker-Sims Plow Company operated in buildings on the current site. In that year, Clyde Lanier King and two partners bought the company and renamed it the Atlanta Agricultural Works, in 1906 again to the Atlanta Plow Company and in 1928 to the King Plow Company. In 1936-38 the plant was expanded to its present size of 165,000 square feet (15,300 m2). At its zenith the plant employed 300. Sales eventually declined and the factory closed in 1986.[2]

Terminal West

Terminal West, a 7,000-square foot music venue, is located within the King Plow Arts Center. The venue, which includes an outdoor roof deck overlooking historic train tracks, specializes in electronic musical acts, particularly dub step.[3] The venue established itself early with a 2012 "Best New Venue" award.[4] As noted in their Creative Loafing award and in Atlanta Magazine's initial write-up, Terminal West has grown to hold shows representing many different genres.[5]

In an a recent review at the Examiner, it was proclaimed that the venue has "quickly become 'the place' to play in Atlanta". In early 2013, Terminal West expanded to hold a restaurant titled Stationside that serves lunch Tuesday - Friday and along with dinner any night of a show.[6]
