Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site

Take a journey through the struggles of the South, as well as the life and legacy of civil rights pioneer Martin Luther King Jr. The 35-acre historical site features King’s original gravesite and current tomb, the King Center and an International Civil Rights Walk of Fame that displays authentic shoe prints of civil rights leaders. We recommend taking a tour of King’s childhood home, Ebenezer Baptist Church and historic Fire Station No. 6 — one of the South’s first desegregated firehouses.
