    Historic House Research Workshop

    Have you ever wondered who may have lived in your house before your family moved in? Could the previous owner have been a prominent politician or civic leader? The Birmingham Public Library (BPL) is hosting a workshop on historic house research on Saturday, July 20, from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm in the Central Library’s Richard Arrington, Jr. Auditorium. This workshop does not require registration and is free to the public.

    The workshop is sponsored by the Jefferson County Historical Commission and the Birmingham Historical Society. Attendees will learn how to conduct research on historic dwellings in Birmingham and Jefferson County. Linda Nelson, Jefferson County Historical Commission Executive Secretary, will discuss requirements of the Historical Marker Program and other historical designations.

    A second component of the workshop will feature BPL Assistant Archivist Catherine Oseas. She will discuss library resources that are useful in researching a historic house. For more information, please contact the Southern History Department of BPL by phone at 205-226-3665 or by e-mail at
