Old Fourth Ward

The Old Fourth Ward, often abbreviated O4W, is located just east of Downtown Atlanta and is best known as the location of the Martin Luther King, Jr. historic site. The neighborhood is a smaller version of the historic Fourth Ward political area in place until the 1950s when the city changed to a district system. It is one of the oldest sections of the city. It’s main thoroughfare Boulevard was considered one of the most desired residential streets in the 1890s. Declining for decades since the 1950s, the neighborhood has seen an extraordinary resurgence in recent years becoming one of Atlanta’s “must have” locations.
