The historic site where Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. was born is closed for repairs, officials said Sunday.

Officials with the National Park Service said professionals will have to inspect “structural damage” to determine how long repairs will take.

“On Saturday Aug. 6, a structural issue with the sub-floor of the home was observed,” the organization said in a statement. “The decision was made to temporarily close the home and suspend tours for safety reasons as preserving the home and protecting visitors are our primary responsibilities.”
