On January 15, 1929, Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in this two-story Queen Anne style house owned by his maternal grandparents. Located in the neighborhood known as “Sweet Auburn," King lived here for the first twelve years of his life, while his father was pastor of the Ebeneezer Baptist Church down the street.
Today, the home has tours and is managed by the National Park Service.
