Jeff E. Newman, a lifelong resident of Birmingham, began researching and exploring the iron ore mining history of Birmingham at age thirteen. He grew up on Red Mountain and made his first ore mine exploration in 1965. For the last fifty years, has read local history, studied maps, and done extensive fieldwork. Using his knowledge, he has located the ore mines in the Birmingham District and photographed many of them to share this important part of Birmingham’s past with future generations.
