Atlanta is a city rich in history and robust with heritage. From its role in the Civil War and Sherman's destructive march through Atlanta streets, Georgia's capital has been a place wrought with history-making events. Later, as Martin Luther King, Jr., made Atlanta the home of the Civil Rights Movement, this hub of the Southeast once again took center stage in events that would alter the course of history.
Discover Atlanta and explore its rich history through its many historic sites, landmarks and museums, including the MLK Jr. National Historic Site, The King Center, the Atlanta History Center and the Center for Civil and Human Rights.
