On December 19, 2014, Congress passed Public Law 113-291, which directed the National Park Service (NPS) to conduct a Special Resource Study for the West Hunter Street Baptist Church. All references to West Hunter Street Baptist Church throughout this document refer to the building at 775 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, SW, Atlanta, Georgia and not the current location of the congregation at 1040 Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard. The special resource study will be developed over the next two years and will evaluate the national significance of the site, the suitability, and feasibility of designating it as a unit of the national park system.
