Glen Iris

An Illustrious Past

Glen Iris was once home to Birmingham’s most prominent citizens, so the neighborhood features some of the city’s nicest older homes. Many of these houses are included on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, more apartments are creeping up. Be sure to stroll through Glen Iris Park, a lovely spot for a nice walk or an adventure with your pet.
