Birmingham in Erie County, Ohio — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The Firelands Board of Education sold the school to Florence Township trustees in 1990. Local residents and school alumni tried to preserve the building, but Birmingham School was demolished in 1995 to create a public park, which soon after became part of Erie MetroParks.
Birmingham School’s original brick entrance archway remains standing in the park.
