Heather, a resident of Bluff Park, came to the web site after seeing the many media stories following our neighborhood meeting in 2006.
"After hearing about the robberies in the shopping center, I wanted to do something to help the community. I grew up in the Hoover/Bluff Park area and, after I got married, my husband and I bought a house right in the heart of Bluff Park. I was so sad to hear about the things happening in our nice community. This is an area where people move because they feel safe here. When my husband and I were looking for a home, we noticed that a lot of young professionals were moving into the area and updating some of the older homes. I think writing about our community is a good way to get involved and get information out to the community, " Heather said.
One of Heather’s goals is to tell the history of Bluff Park, its land, families, buildings and homes in a user-friendly and modern way so all residents will grow to appreciate what a gem Bluff Park is.
In 2007, Heather started a body of work called “A Journey Through Historic Bluff Park” that is taking readers on a tour of historical areas inside the community. In 2009, Heather will continue the history theme with a new body of work - “Historical Homes of Bluff Park”. Articles will include the “Hale-Joseph Home” and “The Overseer’s Home” .
