Fodor's Expert Review Ebenezer Baptist Church

Sweet Auburn, the Old Fourth Ward, and East Atlanta Religious Building/Site/Shrine Fodor's Choice

A Gothic revival–style building completed in 1922, the church came to be known as the spiritual center of the civil rights movement. Members of the King family, including the slain civil rights leader, preached at the church for three generations. Sitting in the main sanctuary on a quiet day when light is shining through the stained-glass windows can be a powerful experience. The congregation itself now occupies the building across the street.
