   GEOGRAPHICAL DESCRIPTION


Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church is located at 2315 – 26th  Avenue North, in the North
Birmingham community, in the City of Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama.

Hopewell was founded in 1929 at the height of the Great Depression and has served the North
Birmingham Community continuously ever since.  Its sanctuary and educational building have been
designated as Historical Landmarks by the Birmingham Historical Society.

Geographically, North Birmingham is one of the City’s oldest industrial areas.  Iron foundries and
metal processing industries, like Sloss-Sheffield iron and Steel Company, developed and operated
competitively in the area for several decades.  ACIPCO Foundry, Tri-Fab Foundry, as well as other
light industrial facilities still remain viable in the community.

The North Birmingham community is accessed primarily by I-65, which runs from North to South
through the community; by 26th Street and Finley Boulevard, which runs at a
Southwest/Northwest angle through the community.

Approximately 20,000 people live in North Birmingham’s five neighborhoods, which represents
7.3% of the City’s current  population.  The residential population, made up of all age groups, is
largely African American, (based upon most recent U.S. Census Bureau data).

The North Birmingham community has steadily evolved from being a heavy industrial area to a very
diverse regional economy with major strengths in advance services, finance, banking, health care,
medical services, research, technology and religious facilities for workers to go for spiritual advice.
