Sweet Auburn Historic District

Location

522 Auburn Ave.
Atlanta GA 30312

Nestled in the heart of Atlanta, centered along a mile-and-a-half stretch of Auburn Avenue, the Sweet Auburn Historic District houses one of the city's most important historical African American communities. Since the late 19th century, the district has been home to numerous African American-owned businesses and schools, many the first of their kind in Atlanta or the nation.

The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Park, Big Bethel A.M.E. Church and King Center are all important features of the district, along with the popular Sweet Auburn Curb Market. The neighborhood is represented by Sweet Auburn Works, the district's voice for implementing Main Street projects and activities that promote commerce, visitation and sustainability of historic places.
