South Titusville is a neighborhood in the Titusville community of Birmingham. It is divided from North Titusville by the community's main street, 6th Avenue South, and from the Woodland Park neighborhood to the south by Green Springs Avenue. South Titusville is predominantly residential, with large churches such as Sixth Avenue Baptist Church, New Pilgrim Baptist Church, Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, and St Mark's Episcopal Church. The former Center Street Elementary School and Center Street Middle School were located in the heart of the neighborhood. The Birmingham City Jail and Birmingham Department of Public Works are located at the neighborhood's northeastern end.

The South Titusville Neighborhood Association is headed by Lavon Beard. The association meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Titusville Branch Library.

In 1978, South Titusville was selected by the Birmingham City Council as one of five neighborhoods, along with Woodlawn, North Birmingham, Five Points South, and Bush Hills, to share in $10.5 million in federal community development grants. The money was used to cover open ditches, enhance lighting and resurface streets.
