Crestwood logo

The Crestwood community lies on either side of Crestwood Boulevard (U.S. 78) in eastern Birmingham. It is divided by the boulevard into the neighborhoods of Crestwood North and Crestwood South.

While most of Crestwood was developed in the late 1940s, the former "Woodlawn Heights" area of Crestwood North dates to the 1910s.

Crestwood Park and the Crestwood Plaza shopping center are at the center of the community.

Historic designation

Part of Crestwood North was included in the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. In 2006 discussion began on including a larger part of the Crestwood North neighborhood within a historic district, which would require that exterior changes to structures be reviewed for compliance with a preservation plan compiled by the neighborhood.
