A Brief History of Old Fourth Ward
Located in the heart of Atlanta, Old Fourth Ward is a vibrant community with a rich history. Best known as the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the neighborhood in its entirety is one of the oldest in Atlanta, and owes its name to an ordinance adopted by City Council in 1854 that divided Atlanta into five wards. The wards and names changed over time, and today’s Old Fourth Ward is the only area to retain its original name.
