Historic Treasure

Our Take

The historical park is part of the Sweet Auburn neighborhood. Most of the homes in the historic district are privately owned and intermingle with the NPS run sites, and it’s really cool to see a park that is so integrated into the city. Park properties include a visitor center with a museum and film, the house where Martin Luther King, Jr. was born and spent his early years, the church where King and his father were co-pastors, and the tombs of Dr. King and Coretta Scott King, among other historic sites. It really captures the heart of the city while immersing visitors in history without losing sight of Dr. King's still thriving legacy and the timelessness of his work and his message.

“a great leader is born”

A young boy grows up in a time of segregation…A dreamer is moved by destiny into leadership of the modern civil rights movement…This was Martin Luther King, Jr. Come hear his story, visit the home of his birth, and where he played as a child. Walk in his footsteps, and hear his voice in the church where he moved hearts and minds. Marvel at how he was an instrument for social change.

Just like Dr. King never lead a march without a plan, you shouldn't visit Atlanta without a plan. At Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park you will find the places where Dr. King was born, lived, worked, worshipped, and is buried.
