In Atlanta, the kitchen of the Queen Anne-style home at 501 Auburn Avenue was definitely abuzz on 15 January 1929. At noon on that Tuesday, Michael Luther King, Jr. was born in his parents' bedroom on the second floor of the house. The youngster was still living in the home in 1934, when, on the occasion of his baptism, his name was changed to Martin Luther King. Reservations for the daily tours of the restored 1894 home are required; they are free.
