OLD FOURTH WARD
A HIP NEIGHBORHOOD WITH RICH HISTORY
About a mile off Peachtree Street, you’ll find yourself in the midst of one of the hippest corners of Atlanta, Georgia. One of the most beloved historic neighborhoods in Atlanta, Old Fourth Ward (O4W, if you’re in the know) was settled originally in the early 1800s. It’s the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and home to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Ebenezer Baptist Church, and the Sweet Auburn Historic District.
Old Fourth Ward is a jewel along the Atlanta BeltLine. Atlantans and visitors alike come here to play at Historic Fourth Ward Park and the skate park during the day. At night, the neighborhood draws regular crowds to enjoy outdoor concerts and satisfy foodie desires in some of the hottest restaurants and bars in Atlanta.
The architecture in Old Fourth Ward reflects the storied old-meets-new vibe, with restored shotgun houses, Victorian homes, and Craftsman bungalows.
