In 1986, King County, where I reside, was renamed after Martin Luther King Jr. Originally our county was named after William Rufus Devane King, a slaveowner and once Vice President under Franklin Pierce, back in 1852. The renaming of King County was official in 2005 and the new county logo, featuring Martin Luther King Jr replacing a "crown" followed in 2006.
Personally, I'm pleased to have our county to be named after Martin Luther King Jr.
