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.

Admission is free, but reservations are required and spaces are limited. These tours always fill early.

The tours begin at 5:45 p.m. in the atrium of the Central Library and last approximately 90 minutes. The tours end back at the library so visitors are welcome to park in the library’s lot.
