Welcome to Bhamwiki
Bhamwiki, now in its eighth year, is an encyclopedic resource for anyone curious about Birmingham, Alabama and the region around it. We aim for accuracy, objectivity, and accessibility as we work steadily to expand our coverage.
Bhamwiki has thousands individual entries to explore. There are several ways to explore the site. Clicking on any blue link will take you to an article about that topic. You can also peruse some of our featured articles, or take a chance by clicking on "random page" to the left, or, if you know what you're looking for, try the search box, or you can even start at the top.
If you're interested in contributing corrections, comments, or an idea for an article, check out our Bhamwiki:Suggestion box. If you'd like to join the project as an editor, please review our Bhamwiki:User agreement. Note that all contributions are reviewed for adherence to our content policy and are subject to correction and expansion by other editors.
