About Birmingham, AL

Located in north central Alabama, Birmingham is the largest city in the state in terms of population with more than 200,000 people living there. Overall, the metropolitan area boasts more than a million people, meaning you’re bound to find some wonderful homes for sale. Birmingham, AL got its start back in 1871 as it became a major industrial center largely thanks to the intersection of two major railroad lines. This industrial focus also plays a role in how the city got its name since Birmingham, England was also a major industrial city at the time. In addition to rail transportation, Birmingham, Alabama became known for its steel and iron production. As it grew rapidly in its early years, it also earned nicknames such as “Pittsburgh of the South” and “Magic City.”

While Birmingham has long been known for industrial production, it was during the 1950s and 1960s that the city perhaps made the biggest impact on the country as a whole. That period was the Civil Rights Movement, where activists led by Martin Luther King, Jr. and Fred Shuttlesworth worked to end segregation based on race. Resistance to this effort was fierce, with Dr. King being jailed after a nonviolent protest. It was in this jail where Dr. King wrote “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, an influential treatise that would define much of the movement. After months of protests and violent incidents, public accommodations in Birmingham were finally desegregated. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was later passed nationwide.

Today, Birmingham, AL pays respect to the sacrifices of those in the Civil Rights Movement with the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, opened in the 1990s. There, visitors can find out more about the history of civil rights and the role Birmingham played in such a momentous event. You should also visit the Martin Luther King, Jr. statue that’s located in Kelly Ingram Park as you look for homes for sale in Birmingham, Alabama.

You don’t have to worry about finding things to do in Birmingham. The city is known as the entertainment and cultural capital of Alabama thanks to an abundance of museums and art galleries.
