Dexter Avenue King Parsonage

About Dexter Avenue King Parsonage

This porticoed clapboard house served as the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his family during his ministry in Montgomery and his leadership of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.

On January 31, 1956, the parsonage was bombed, ripping a hole through the home and front steps and leaving a scar in the concrete still visible today. The bombing helped focus national attention on the movement in Montgomery and Dr. King’s firm stand on nonviolence.
