Travel Tips for Birmingham

Not-So-Ancient Ruins

by kyrzar

If you're willing to brave the ghetto, Birmingham has some really good modern ruins. Of course, there is sloss furnace, which is now a museam, but there are several other buildings scattered around Birmingham proper that were once nice places and now have all the windows broken out.

"birmingham"

birmgham is the county seat of jefferson county and the largest city in alabama. birmingham is located at the junction of interstate highways I-20 and I-65. birmingham is named after birmingham england and was founded in 1871. the area around birmingham once had large deposits of iron ore, coal, and limestone which are the principal ingredients in making steel. nicknamed the "pittsburg of the south" birmingham was an important steel manufacturing city from the turn of the 20 th century until the great depression of the 1930's. there are still a couple of steel mills operating in the birmingham area today. of interest to tourists is nearby oak mountain and tannehill state parks, the historic sloss furnaces, and the downtown civil rights district. on the south side of birmingham is the upscale areas of mountain brook, vestavia hills, and homewood which offer excellent shopping, dining, and nightlife. birmingham is a very interesting city to visit when in north central alabama.

in modern times the city of birmingham is best known for it's part in the civil rights movement of the 1960's. after the radical reconstruction era in the decade after the civil war the state of alabama enacted "jim crow" laws to segreate the white and black populations and to suppress black economic and voting rights. in 1963 the civil rights activist martin luther king and the southern christian leadership conference (SCLC) planned a series of sit ins, marches, and boycotts to protest birmingham's segregation laws. king recruited black students for his "children's crusade" to protest the "jim crow" culture of the city. birmingham police chief eugene "bull" connor who was a vehement segregationist used force to disrupt these demonstrations. conner used fire hoses and police dogs to disperse the protesters. this show of force made national news and public outcry went against the policies of conner. a moderate white organization called the "citizens for progress" ousted conner from his position as police chief later that year. after the protests the the 16 th street baptist church was bombed by the klu klux klan and four children were killed. this bombing outraged the nation and led to the signing of the 1964 civil rights act. in the ingram park area of downtown birmingham you can visit the birmingham civil rights insititute and the 16 th street baptist church.
