History was made in this home. A family grew here. A legacy advanced here. And now – thanks to private support through @GoParks – another piece of American history will forever be learned here.
.
This home, in #Atlanta’s historic Vine City neighborhood, was where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and #CorettaScottKing raised their family. To ensure that this and future generations will be able to experience the profound stories connected to this place, the #NationalParkFoundation purchased and transferred the home to the @NationalParkService to be preserved as part of @martinlutherkingjrnps.
.
#MLK’s life and legacy will echo throughout time. This place will invite visitors to understand how his work as a minister and #CivilRights leader were intertwined with and fueled by his roles as a father and husband.
