Map to Location

Created as one of five wards in the 1850’s as Atlanta was experiencing rapid growth, the Old Fourth Ward is the only neighborhood whose name still references the original ward system. Its diverse population over the centuries has made it ground zero for events and figures who shaped the nation.
We'll walk through the southernmost portion of O4W, visiting sites like the historic Howard Middle School, the John Wesley Dobbs house, the MLK Jr. birth home, the Wigwam Condos, the Atlanta beltline, and more. Meet on the patio of Condesa Coffee.
