MLK’s Childhood Home Has Been Closed Since August, Park Service Remains Tight-Lipped About Details

The stately Atlanta, Georgia, childhood home of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has been closed for more than three months due to repairs.

Since Aug. 6, the doors have been shut and the National Park Service, which operates the museum, has not been forthcoming about a timetable on when they will reopen.

The home has served as of one of Atlanta’s most cherished landmarks and tourist sites. However, visitors hoping to tour the home have been disappointed.

The National Park Service released a statement stating that the home had damage to its floors, according to WSB-TV Channel 2 Action News.

“A structural issue with the sub-floor of the home was observed. The decision was made to temporarily close the home and suspend tours for safety reasons,” the statement read.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Justin Wilfon spoke to the chief ranger by phone, but he declined to comment at this time.

As a result, the news outlet has filed a Freedom of Information request to see all documents regarding the status of the repairs.
