  1. This is wonderful what you are doing…must have researcher in your genes. I am a genealogist and enjoy helping people finding their families.


    1. We can use you! We want to be, and with the help of all the homeowners and former homeowners, residents and those who just love the community, are well on our way to being the ultimate resource on all things “Cahaba Project”!


  2. Have loved this neighborhood since the first time I saw it over twenty years ago, and now, since 2015, have enjoyed the privilege of calling it home. The quaint cottage style homes coupled with its historical origins makes it a pretty special place to live.


  3. I grew up on Brentwood. My parents still live there! I’ve been very upset at the way the history of the Cahaba Project has not been respected by many new buyers or developers. I am happy to see that people are trying to now do something about it. Let me know how I can support your efforts!
