Ensley joins historic districts recognized on National Register

August 20, 2010

Ensley’s historic commercial district is now recognized on the National Register of Historic Places, a great honor for a place with potential to return to its former glory as a center of commerce and culture. According to Main Street Birmingham, which has been working with other local organizations to push the nomination, the designation brings tax advantages that will help in its revival and add to the great work already going on.

Ensley joins other local districts, residential and commercial, on the National Register, including downtown Birmingham, downtown Bessemer, Forest Park, Smithfield and Woodlawn.

Check the Main Street website for more about this organization’s work to promote Ensley and other target districts including Avondale, East Lake, Lomb Avenue, North Birmingham, Parkway East, Titusville, Tuscaloosa Avenue and Woodlawn. And take a drive off I-59 to tour Ensley’s commercial district and appreciate the beauty and the possibilities of this special place.
