Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site
A few blocks to the east of downtown, the Sweet Auburn neighborhood is home to the birthplace of America's most influential Civil Rights leader. Operated by the National Park Service, this historic site contains Dr. King's boyhood home, his crypt and the Ebenezer Baptist Church. Tours are conducted daily. Since the historic site covers several city blocks, visitors are advised to stop at the Visitor Center upon arrival for a map and touring advice.
MLK Jr National historic site is by far one of the greatest historical places I visited. This place is educational, inspiring, honorable and something you can always remember. Looking and reading the things you see here really makes you take a moment and appreciate everything the past has offered our future! This is a place that you do not even have to bring childern to or think its just for children to learn, because I learned alot, yes even things I already knew but got more insight in detail of certian things. I was inspired and this place took my breath away! I highly suggest visiting ALL the sites, churches and musems! They are all free and I beleive the walk through of MLK Jr house has a small fee, i can't remember and I didnt even matter because it was all worth it. This is def a place I would love to take my neices and plan to make a trip back to ATL with them for this simple reason. I have NEVER wrote a review for anything but I HAD TO FOR THIS! It is that amazing!
A national treasure in the heart of Atlanta.The tour through Dr Kings Atlanta home of birth was magnificent.The ranger told the story of Dr. King with such passion and insight.The Ranger Blessed me and my family with his words of wisdon and knowledge of the life of Dr. King.This is a must see if you want to seet he heart of Atlanta.
When I was here I met one of the men that marched with Martin Luther King Jr. His story was the best part! He works there, but I don't know if he still does. There were brouchers and in one of the pictures was him marching with Martin Luther King Jr. and he circled himself and signed it for me!
This place was beautiful. I enjoyed every moment of the tour and the video that was played. After visiting you can truly understand what Dr. King wanted for all his people. He was a man for ALL! I highly recommend this site for kids, adults, and ALL God's people.
It was memorial day weekend 1994 And I came to Atlanta to visit my girlfriend. I wanted to visit this site and she refused to go with me because she said that it was to hot. I was able to find my way there from stone mountain with out a hitch it was almost as though I had lived in the A all my life. I took many pictures that afternoon. and I toured the birth house. I used those pictures to teach many a black history lessons to the many differant classes I have had over the years. In december of 2006 after the Christmas break I returned to myclass to explain to 15 kindergarden students that I would not be their teacher anymore because I had moved to Atlanta Georgia. At the end of the day one of my students was telling his grandmother that I was not going to be his teacher any more because I had moved To Atlanta Geogia Where Dr. Martin Luther King used to live. I know live here in Atlanta I love it I am still teaching children about the struggles that America went through to gain equality for all people. I encourage you and your family if you are visitng Atlant toplace this site at the top of your things to do list in georgia. If you are here on Sunday come and felloeship With me at the Ebenezer Baptist Church
It is a good place to visit, but you need to be careful when getting there. We decided to walk and the site is right next to a rough area. On Auburn Ave just after going under the underpass on I-75/85, there was graffiti on the walls and some closed stores. I had to go up Hillard St. and Irwin St. for safety purposes. Don't take any pictures when inside the house. They will take your camera away. I could visit again, but drive instead of walk.
