Birmingham Noir: A Nighttime Walking Tour of Notorious Downtown Sites
We are sorry, but this year's Birmingham Noir tours are sold out. Contact Jim Baggett at 226-3631 or firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on a list to receive an e-mail reservation reminder before next October's tours are advertised.
Just as the afternoon sun slips out of the downtown sky, like a platinum blonde sliding into a black party dress, the night owls will gather at the library.
Put on your walking shoes and join Birmingham Public Library archivist Jim Baggett for a visit to some of Birmingham's most infamous historic places. Learn about the Magic City's most famous brothel, spectacular 19th century murders, political intrigues, and the scandal that nearly destroyed Bull Connor's career.
The two tour dates are October 28 and 30. The tours begin at 5:45 p.m. in the Atrium of the Central Library and last approximately 90 minutes.
Admission is free, but reservations are required and spaces are limited. Contact Jim Baggett at 226-3631 or email@example.com.
