Dr. King's Birth Home

It became a part of the National Park Service in October of 1980 when Congress established the Martin Luther king, Jr. National Historic Site.
The structure was built in 1895. The King family’s association with the building started in 1909 when Martin Luther King’s grandfather purchased the home. It was his maternal grandfather who made the buy, the Reverend Adam Williams of the Ebenezer Baptist Church located just a block away.
The home has been restored to how it appeared during Martin Luther King, Jr.’s lifetime. Tours of the home are free, but tickets are required and these tickets get snatched up quickly.
Except on one day a year!!! Can you guess what day? I will give you a hint: it was established as a Federal holiday in 1986 and is celebrated every third Monday of January… it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of course!

On this holiday the King birth home is an open house to the public. Anybody can just show up and walk in without a ticket.

Picture taking is not allowed in the Home. The National Park Service is responsible for preserving the Birth Home for future generations. Because of the age of the Birth Home they can only let a limited number of people on each tour. 📷 .
