Shannon Holmes NEIGHBORHOODS Leave a Comment

Within the city of Birmingham, Alabama, and situated along the ridge of Red Mountain, are the three neighborhoods of:

  • Forest Park
  • Redmont Park
  • Highland Park

Forest Park, developed in 1914, descends from the top of the ridge, following the mountain downward towards the popular area of restaurants and retail known as “Southside”.

Redmont Park, developed in 1925, sits at the pinnacle of the ridge, and has some of Birmingham’s most prestigious stone castles and grandest mansions.  Many have breathtaking views of the city lights at night. Redmont is situated just above the English Village commercial district.

Highland Park is centered by Highland Park itself, and adjacent to the Highland Park Golf Course.  Homes such as Donnelly House on Highland Avenue have made their way onto the National Historic Register.

These urban neighborhoods were developed in the early 1900’s, and have experienced a strong resurgence in the last twenty years or so. An interesting mix of many architectural styles popular in the early twentieth century can be found in these three neighborhoods, including:

  • Georgian
  • Italianate
  • French
  • Craftsman
  • Tudor
  • Mediterranean
  • Southern Colonial

Though only a few hundred homes belong to these neighborhoods, their authentic architectural details, along with close-in convenience to downtown and UAB, give these three neighborhoods genuine appeal.
