Input sought on Birmingham's bicentennial

09/08/2017 - Birmingham will celebrate its 200th birthday on December 1, 2018, and the Birmingham Museum Board is looking for public input on how to celebrate the city's bicentennial.

A special committee has been formed to commemorate the first purchase of government land in what is now Birmingham by founder Elijah Willits, and the committee has been exploring various ways the community can celebrate this occasion together. They have created a survey, which takes about five minutes to complete. It is available in both paper/pencil format and online. Print copies can be filled out at the Birmingham Museum lobby; the Baldwin Public Library Adult Reference desk; the clerk's counter at the city of Birmingham offices; and at the Birmingham Shopping District counter at City Hall.

Electronic versions will be available at surveymonkey.com/r/SC3QK9Y or at the museum's Facebook page at facebook.com/TheBirminghamMuseu.

To find out more, call the Birmingham Museum at 248-530-1928 or bhamgov.org/museum.
