Birmingham Public Library to Host Walking Tour of Notorious Downtown Historic Sites
Learn about Birmingham’s most famous brothel, its memorable 19th century murders, and the scandal that nearly destroyed former Birmingham Public Safety Commissioner Bull Connor’s career during Birmingham Noir, a walking tour in downtown Birmingham on Friday, October 25, and Wednesday, October 30. The tour starts at 5:45 p.m. The same tour will be offered on both dates.
Birmingham Public Library Archivist Jim Baggett leads the tour, which covers several blocks filled with stories about local murders, fallen women, and unsolved mysteries. It’s a popular library program that’s offered every year around Halloween.
The tour begins in the Atrium of the Central Library, 2100 Park Place, and lasts approximately 90 minutes. The tour ends in the library’s parking lot at Park Place and 22nd Street North.
Space is limited and reservations are required. To make reservations, call (205) 226-3631 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring bottled water. The tour is free.
