Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this mega-campus straddling MLK Drive encompasses some of the nation's top historically black colleges and graduate schools, including Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Morehouse and Spelman colleges. Money from the Rockefellers and other philanthropists paid for some truly spectacular 19th-century buildings, such as Graves Hall, the oldest building at Morehouse; the old West Hunter Street Baptist Church, whose pastor was civil rights leader Ralph David Abernathy; and Fairchild-Stone Hall on the Morris Brown College campus, now listed as a National Historic Landmark.
