Old 4th Ward

Old 4th Ward

Old 4th Ward is a historic neighborhood in Atlanta. Located just east of downtown, in an area originally settled in the early 1800s, Old 4th Ward is the birthplace of America's best-known civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Until recently, the main attractions to this neighborhood have been based in history, such as the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Ebenezer Baptist Church and the Sweet Auburn Historic District. Visitors can tour restored shotgun houses, Victorian homes and Craftsman bungalows in the neighborhood.

In recent years, Old 4th Ward has continued to evolve and redefine itself. One big asset to the area has been the proximity to Freedom Parkway and the Atlanta BeltLine. This neighborhood also features the Historic Fourth Ward Park, dedicated in the spring of 2011. This park encompasses 17 acres of new green space, a two-acre lake, playground, a state-of-the-art splash pad, an outdoor theater, athletic field and a world-class skate park.

Dining options are everywhere here, from Serpas True Food to relative newcomer Venkman's — not only a restaurant but a music venue as well. Don't miss the myriad bars, restaurants and shops on Edgewood Avenue, where you can also hop on the Atlanta Streetcar.
