Originally developed as a residential haven from the industrialization of Birmingham, Mountain Brook now stands as a wealthy suburb that attracts the area's best and brightest workers with an 11-minute commute into the city.

Here you'll find attorneys, CEOs, and plenty of academics and physicians from the nearby University of Alabama at Birmingham and its associated medical center. Mountain Brook has two exclusive country clubs, and its high school is ranked 2nd in the state.

Community events such as an annual Easter egg hunt and a Halloween parade with floats and an antique fire truck complete the suburban appeal.
