The 1895 Queen Anne style Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthplace in Atlanta, GA. A National Historic Landmark, it is owned by the National Park Service and operated as a museum interpreted to the time of King’s occupancy as a child. While specific to King’s childhood in the 1930s, the house also documents how other successful Black families lived in Atlanta during that period. More information can be found at: https://www.nps.gov/articles/kingsite.htm
