Living In Sweet Auburn

The Sweet Auburn neighborhood was designated in 1976 as a National Historic Landmark. However, like other inner-city areas, Sweet Auburn suffered due to lack of investment, widespread crime and homelessness. This was compounded by the construction of the Downtown Connector freeway that split it in two.

In 1992, the National Trust for Historic Preservation recognized that Sweet Auburn was one of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places and the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation included the neighborhood in its 2006 list of Places in Peril.

The Historic District Development Corporation (HDDC) was formed to turn the trend around, starting with houses surrounding the birth home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and working outward.
