Sweet Auburn Historic District — Atlanta

Although the Sweet Auburn Historic District is registered as a historic place locally and nationally, the National Trust for Historic Preservation listed the area as endangered in 2012 due to “inappropriate development.” The area was once known as the “richest Negro street in the world,” and is the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr. at 501 Auburn Avenue.
