CHHF, library team up for Cahaba Project home research event

TRUSSVILLE — The Cahaba Homestead Heritage Foundation, Inc., along with the Trussville Public Library, will host a “Researching Your House History” program for Cahaba Project homes.

The event, put on by Birmingham Public Library Assistant Archivist Catherine Champion, is scheduled for Friday, March 4 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Trussville Public Library auditorium. Champion founded the student chapter of Society of American Archivists at the University of Alabama and has lectured throughout the Birmingham area and around the state.

The event will include:

  • Learning how to locate vintage photos of your home and more about who lived there
  • Learning how to apply for a Jefferson County Historical Commission plaque
  • Free pizza
  • A drawing of your home – yours to color and keep! – for the first 15 to register by Feb. 25
  • A “home sweet home” cookie from the Three-Earred Rabbit

The first 15 people to register by Feb. 25 and attend the event will receive a coloring book-style rendering of their Cahaba Project home for children and/or grandchildren — or yourself! – to color.
