Old Fourth Ward, affectionately known as O4W is an eclectic, artsy and hip neighborhood east of downtown and just steps away from the Atlanta Beltline and Freedom Parkway. It is home to Old Fourth Distillery, the first distillery opened after prohibition. It is steeped in history as one of the first neighborhoods rebuilt after the Civil War and includes the birthplace of Martin Luther King, the MLK Historic Site and Ebenezer Baptist Church. It includes several parks including Old Fourth Ward Park, a 17-acre park with a two-acre lake, an outdoor theater, and a skate park connected to the Eastside Beltline trail.
Much of OFW ward was devastated by the Great Atlanta Fire of 1917 with many of the grand homes on Boulevard destroyed and replaced by larger apartment complexes. The architecture in OFW is varied with Victorian-era houses, Craftsman Bungalows, and modern homes. The largest concentration of single-family homes can be found south of Freedom Parkway, especially south of Irwin Street.
Old Fourth Ward is home to the historic boyhood home of Martin Luther King Jr.
