Birmingham’s downtown churches reach back to the city’s founding days—and now are contributing to the renewed vitality of the city center. Come learn about the architecture, hear some stories the buildings tell, find out about the range of resources they offer, and visit a few of the church interiors. The tour focuses on the original congregations that are still downtown: Cathedral of St. Paul, First Presbyterian Church, Cathedral Church of the Advent, First United Methodist Church, and 16th Street Baptist Church.
This third annual walking tour series offer participants a fun, invigorating way to experience the history and architectural beauty of Birmingham’s neighborhoods and cultural districts.
The tours are made possible through The Caring Foundation of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, Spire, and Protective Life Corporation.
The Sunday tour begins at 2 pm. Registration is $10 for Vulcan Park and Museum members and $12 non-members. Space is limited and advanced registration is required.
