Old Fourth Ward (O4W)

Old Fourth Ward

Old Fourth Ward is a historic neighborhood in Atlanta. Located just east of downtown, in an area originally settled in the early 1800s, Old Fourth Ward (OFW – look for this sticker sported on the cars of proud residents!) is the birthplace of America's best-known civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Until recently, the main attractions to OFW have been based in history, such as the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Ebenezer Baptist Church and the Sweet Auburn Historic District. Visitors can tour restored shotgun houses, Victorian homes and Craftsman bungalows in the neighborhood.

In recent years, OFW has continued to evolve and redefine itself. Several big assets to the area have been the proximity to Freedom Parkway, Ponce City Market and the Atlanta BeltLine, which has inspired growth and community investment. An example of this growth is the Historic Fourth Ward Park, dedicated in the spring of 2011. This park encompasses 17 acres of new green space, a two-acre lake, playground, a state-of-the-art splash pad, an outdoor theater, athletic field and a world-class skate park. You'll find one of the many entrances to this park at Glen Iris Drive and Rankin Street.

Also in Old Fourth Ward, you'll find some incredible dining and nightlife. Venture down Edgewood Avenue for bars and other hot spots – you may even find a hidden speakeasy. Some of Atlanta's top restaurants call OFW home.
