The Center was created by Mrs. Coretta Scott King in 1968 as a memorial dedicated to preserving the legacy of her husband, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Center is the hub of a unique, 23-acre National Historic Site and Preservation District in downtown Atlanta. It includes the Victorian house where Dr. King was born; which was the first birth home of a black American to be placed on the National Historic Register, The Ebenezer Baptist Church; where Dr. King served as co-pastor with his father; and the tomb where Dr. King now rests. The site also contains many homes and shops of the "Sweet Auburn" area of Atlatna, one of America's oldest and most vital black cultural business districts.
