Welcome to the Redmont Hotel! This 13 story brick & terra-cotta faced hotel was opened May 1, 1925 and is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue North and Richard Arrington Junior Boulevard North (how's that for a long street name?) The building architect was G Lloyd Preacher and the builder was Smallman & Brice Company. Birmingham was originally a mining town, the Redmont name refers to Red Mountain, where many of the mines were located. Note the metal balcony on the left that serves as a canopy over the front doors.
