509 Auburn Avenue

This apartment building represents the ups and downs of the Auburn Avenue neighborhood. As property owners started to move away in the 1950s, numerous dwellings gradually fell into disrepair. Since 1982 the National Park Service and various civic organizations have conducted historic research projects on the buildings. The Nation Park Service has rehabilitated, restored, and, in this case, reconstructed several buildings to their appearance in 1929-41 when Martin Luther King, Jr. lived in the neighborhood.
