Vacant schools are a common sight throughout Birmingham. WBHM’s Mary Scott Hodgin recently reported on surplus property owned by Birmingham City Schools. The buildings symbolize decades of population decline and budget cuts. As Birmingham’s city center and interest in historic properties grows, many hope these large structures will be revitalized. We’ve created a map showing where these empty schools are located. Take a look. Also: Did we miss any? Don’t see a vacant school located near you shown?
