Martin Luther King, Jr., National Historic Site

The Martin Luther King, Jr., National Historic Site includes a number of facilities that are operated in partnership with the National Park Service, Ebenezer Baptist Church and The King Center. Within these facilities the visitor can learn about Dr. King's life and and his influence on others.
The Peace Plaza is the area between the National Park Service Visitor Center and Auburn Avenue. The focal points of the beautifully landscaped plaza area are the Martin Luther King, Jr. "I Have a Dream" World Peace Rose Garden, which includes inspirational messages of peace composed by students from local Atlanta schools, and a flowing water fountain. Also located in the plaza is the "BEHOLD" statue.
The GPS Ranger is a self-guided multimedia device that guides you through the historic Sweet Auburn Area. Hear Dr. King's message of social justice and equality, view images of the civil rights movement, and experience the aftermath of his untimely death, all in the palm of your hand. This device also provides an alternative to visitors who are unable to take the tour of the Birth Home during high visitation.
