Birmingham Historical Museum

The Allen House is on the site of Birmingham's first brick schoolhouse. In fact, some of the bricks from the school were used in constructing the home, which was formerly the residence of the Harry Allen family. Mr. Allen was the first Mayor when Birmingham became a city in 1933. Together, the Allen House and the Hunter House are now known as the Birmingham Historical Museum.
