Start at the visitor center and then work your way around the three main sites in this historic park: the home in which the leader of the Civil Rights movement in America was born, the church where he preached and the memorial site where he is buried. A major Atlanta attraction, the park draws some 500,000 visitors each year.

Very impressive historical site about Martin Luther King Jr. The site consists of a visitors center, the birthplace, the tombe of MLK.

The legacy of MLK (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr) is fitting of a complex that is well cared for, well managed and professionally presented. This is not the case here at the MKL-HS. We walked the entire complex and it screams for attention and care....More
