The Homewood Merger Committee was a group of business owners and leading citizens from Homewood that supported the proposed merger of Homewood with Birmingham in 1964. The group's address was 2803 18th Street South. Homewood residents ended up voting in favor of the merger by a margin of six ballots on August 11, 1964, but the result was overturned by the Alabama Supreme Court on April 16, 1965 for lack of sufficient notice of the election.
