This is replica of an original business card of Reverend A.D. Williams, Dr. Marin Luther King's maternal grandfather and pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, dating to around 1908.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Birth Home, located at 501 Auburn Avenue, is the house where Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 and lived in until he was 12.

The two-story Queen Anne-style home was built in 1895. King’s maternal grandparents, Reverend Adam Daniel (A.D.) Williams and Jennie Williams, bought the house for ,500 in 1909. Reverend Williams was the pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church, a charter member of Atlanta’s NAACP, and an early civil rights activist, leading voter registration drives as far back as 1917. In 1926, Martin’s parents, Michael King, Sr. and Alberta Christine Williams King married and moved into the house. In 1927, they their first child, Willie Christine King and two years later, their first son, Michael King, Jr., who would later be renamed after the German reformer Martin Luther in 1934. When Reverend Williams died in 1931, King became head of the household and took over Williams's pulpit at Ebenezer Church. The King family lived in the house until 1941 when they moved a few blocks away. They retained ownership of the house, though, and Martin’s younger brother, Reverend Alfred Daniel (A.D.) Williams King, lived here from 1954 to 1963. In 1971, Alberta Christine Williams King deeded the home to the King Center, and it has since been restored to its appearance during the years of King’s boyhood.


he Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site National Park Service Visitor Center, located at 450 Auburn Avenue, was built in 1996. The center features interactive exhibits and memorabilia tracing Dr. King's life and his role in the Civil Rights movement.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic District, an area bound roughly by Irwin, Randolph, Edgewood, and Auburn Avenues, was established in 1974 and later, in 1977 designated a national historic landmark, and expanded in 2001. The district encompasses the environs in which Martin Luther King, Jr., grew up from his birth in 1929 until he left Atlanta.
