A Taste of Fairfield, Alabama

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT FAIRFIELD?

  1. Fairfield is a city in western Jefferson County, Alabama, United States. It is part of the Birmingham–Hoover Metropolitan Area. Its location is southeast of Pleasant Grove. The population was 11,117 at the 2010 census.

  2. Fairfield has its own school system, independent from Jefferson County. The system includes three elementary schools, Forest Hills Middle School, Fairfield High Preparatory School (formerly Fairfield High School), and an alternative all-grades school. The city is also home to Miles College, a historically black college operated by the CME Church. The school was founded in 1898.

  3. Though the United States steel making industry has gone through a decline through the last half of the 20th Century, U.S. Steel's Fairfield Works continues to be a major employer, though not in the levels seen around the 1950s. Advances in steel-making technology have enabled the works to produce roughly the same amount of product as during that era, but with a much smaller workforce. Portions of the Works have been closed over the years, but many parts of the complex have been reopened by smaller industries, some of which are steel-related.

  4. The median income for a household in the city was $27,845, and the median income for a family was $38,552.
