It’s fascinating to look upon a home and think of the stories it has witnessed, of the people whose lives revolved around it. . Now take that same notion and consider it again when you realize that a great leader was born and lived there. It makes you look at the steps of a porch, a dining room table, a parlor in a new light. . This is the childhood house of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. – it was his home for the first 12 years of his life. His legacy began here, making the need to protect the historic home critical. . Thanks to private philanthropy, @GoParks guaranteed that future generations will be able to learn from the lessons this house holds. By facilitating the purchase of the birth home from @TheKingCenter and immediately transferring it to the @NationalParkService to officially be part of @martinlutherkingjrnps , the #NationalParkFoundation ensured that this remarkable place will have the ongoing support needed to continue preserving and sharing Dr. King’s profound legacy. .
