I’m grateful the National Park Service has preserved such an important part of our history. MLK’s home tour was enlightening, and the Ebenezer Baptist Church self-tour was educational and emotional.

Get there early to see the MLK Jr. Birth Home. If you can't, there's still plenty of worthwhile things to see in the Visitor's Center, Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, and along Auburn Ave.
