‪Final resting place of an incredible man, John Lewis. Also home to 80,000 others who have done amazing things with their lives. The parents of MLK jr. are buried here, too!! Worth the drive ‬

‪To be clear, South-View Cemetery is the resting place of Martin Luther King Jr's parents - not MLK Jr. US Rep and civil rights hero John Lewis is also buried here.

MLK Jr was initially buried at South-View, but his tomb was moved five miles north decades ago to the MLK National Historic Park.‬

‪I found it hard to believe when I discovered that South-View Cemetery was not listed on Tripadvisor, than nobody had submitted a review of the cemetery where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his family was buried originally. After all, Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, where golf legend Bobby Jones is buried, is listed. But not South-View? Now it is. Located at 1990 Jonesboro Road Southeast, about 15 minutes from downtown Atlanta, South-View covers over 100 manicured acres. In the late 1800s, during the years of reconstruction following the Civil War, former slaves and their free-born children began to establish a respectful and dignified way of life for their families throughout the South. This was particularly true in Atlanta, which had been destroyed by General William T. Sherman. As the nearly freed Blacks began to build schools to educate their children, hospitals to care for their sick and businesses to provide goods and services for their communities, they also created a dignified resting place to honor their loved ones. In 1886, nine courageous Black businessmen petitioned the State of Georgia for a charter to establish a cemetery. It was granted and the legacy of South-View Cemetery began. It is the final resting place for over 80,000 African Americans and the oldest African-American not-for-profit corporation in the United States. After Dr King was assassinated in Memphis in 1968, his body was brought to South-View, where his parents would later be buried. Dr. King's widow, Coretta Scott King, opened the Martinn Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change in the basement of the couple's home two months after her husband's death. In 1970, she had his body moved to a new tomb on a cleared lot east of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. King preached. The address is 450 Auburn Avenue Northeast. The tomb was faced with Georgia marble in order to acknowledge Dr. King's southern roots. The grave site has evolved over time. In 1976, a memorial park was built around the marble crypt, consisting of a brick and concrete plaza ringed by an arch-covered walkway. In time, the raked gravel directly around the sarcophagus was replaced by a reflecting pool with Dr. King's crypt on a raised pedestal in the middle. An Eternal Flame was added in 1977. Coretta Scott King died in 2006 and joined her husband in a sarcophagus to match his. The tomb is outdoors and open all year.‬
