Facility:Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site
Description:Capture The Dream. Just past noon on January 15, 1929, a son was born to the Reverend and Mrs. Martin Luther King, Sr., in an upstairs bedroom of 501 Auburn Avenue, in Atlanta, Georgia. It was in these surroundings of home, church (Ebenezer Baptist Church), and neighborhood (Sweet Auburn) that "M.L." experienced family and Christian love, segregation in the days of "Jim Crow" laws, diligence and tolerance.

No special arrangements are needed since most of the park is self-guided. However, you will need to register to tour the Birth Home of Dr. King, which may be visited only with a park ranger led tour. Reservations for touring the Birth Home are handled on a first-come first-serve basis the day of your tour, in person. No advance reservations can be made.
