No trip to Atlanta would be complete without a visit to Martin Luther King, Jr’s memorial – um – section of town. It really is about three city blocks and very impressive. All beautifully kept up. This first image is the original Ebenezer Baptist Church where MLK preached.
This is the fountain with the graves in the middle. I could not catch a moment when the sun was shining to take this picture when I was there, so I have overcast. When the sun is shining, it’s breathtaking.
You would think I was there on a weekend in the summer instead of a weekday in March. This is the house MLK grew up in with ten other people living there at the same time. It’s about two blocks from the church.
This is a must see area because it’s so impressive. They way it’s put together, you really do get a sense of history. Allow two hours at minimum and be prepared to walk because finding parking can be tricky.
