People Around The World Visit Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Home In Montgomery


On Monday we will honor the Martin Luther King Junior holiday.

Today we caught up with people visiting King’s home in Montgomery.

Each year the museum gets thousands of visitors from all over the world.

Tour Director Glencile Greeleaf tell us this is where Dr. King lived during the five and half years he was a pastor at Dexter Church.

Greeleaf say she gives tours of the home daily.

No cameras were allowed inside the home, but Greeleaf says on average each month, the museum gets about 1,000 people visiting.

Brandy Shannon is visiting for the first time from Portland Oregon.

She says one of the first things she noticed before entering the house was a hole in the porch from a bomb.

The home has most of King’s original furniture inside.
