City of Birmingham: Fact Sheet
The formal settlement of the area now know as Birmingham occurred over 180 years ago. The pioneer story of this small Michigan community began when four enterprising men purchased the first parcels totaling 640 acres of land in 1818. They included Elijah Willits, Benjamin Pierce, John Hamilton and John West Hunter. Hunter was the first permanent resident building his log cabin during the winter of 1819. Unlike other pioneering communities that attracted farmers looking for rich new farmland, Birmingham’s founders quickly established a manufacturer based local economy. Foundries, tanneries, blacksmith shops, broom and brick making factories were just some of the businesses that were quickly defining this frontier community. Birmingham’s name was chosen by those optimistic about the growth of the village to mimic England’s biggest industrial center.Most of the manufacturers of the 1830s were gone by the 1860s and so were the visions of Birmingham as a major industrial center. Instead the quiet Village of Birmingham emerged. The Eccentric Newspaper, banks, merchants, shop owners and other professionals such as doctors, dentist and lawyers established their business in town. By the 1890s long time residents who had been lobbying for many improvements began to see better roads, the opening of the interurban street car lines, the establishment of paid fire department, clean water supply and a new public library. In 1864, it became a village and 1933 a city was born.Area 4.8 square milesPopulation 19,291 (2000 census)Households 9,131 (2003 SEMCOG)Household Income $80,861 (2000 Census in 1999 Dollars)Per Capita Income $59,314 (2000 Census in 1999 Dollars)Employment Financial activities account for 18% of the total employment Leisure & Hospitality accounts for 15% while retail accounts for 12% of the totalMedian Housing Value $318,000 (2000 Census in 2000 Dollars) Birmingham is 778 feet above sea level Notable Residents Sam Rami (director), Tim Allen (actor, author), Shane Battier (NBA basketball player) David Spade (actor), Marshall Fredricks (sculptor) 1,600 fire hydrants and 3,747 street lights Attractions: Palladium Theater Uptown Birmingham Theater Over 20 city parks
