The childhood home of Martin Luther King Jr. has officially been sold.
The National Park Service has bought the home in Atlanta, Georgia, where MLK Jr. was born in 1929.
The King family owned the home on Auburn Avenue for over 100 years and closed the sale last month for an undisclosed amount. Sourcs are reporting that it was somewhere in the ballpark of $1.9M.
Congress declared the home a National Historic Site in 1980, and the National Park Service began offering tours of it in 1982.
The home was built in 1895 for a white family and bought by King’s maternal grandfather in 1909 for $3,500. King’s mother inherited it. King’s younger brother, A.D. King, and his family were the last of the King line to live there.
