Wouldn’t it be wonderful while searching for a new neighborhood to discover a hidden gem only 15 minutes from the heart of downtown Atlanta? Then look no further than Old Fourth Ward. This Eastside neighborhood is so conveniently located to The Masquerade, a fabulous music venue and Historic Fourth Ward Park, with its sports fields, ponds, jogging trails and playgrounds.
Home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Old Fourth Ward has great historical value to the city of Atlanta. Dr. King was born and raised in the area and now his family home and grave site are all part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Site.
Like many inner city neighborhoods, Old Fourth Ward suffered through years of decline before revitalization began in earnest in the early 2000’s. Over the last decade, this neighborhood has become one of the most sought after sections of Atlanta, with housing now at a premium. Many of the neighborhood’s modest homes are being purchased and renovated back to their original style, now complete with modern updates. In 2013, This Old House Magazine selected Old Fourth Ward for their yearly Best Old House Neighborhoods: The South, bringing even more attention to this fabulous family friendly community. And while the neighborhood continues to grow and improve, there are still many of the neighborhood’s historic homes waiting for their turn.
