Fairfield, Alabama

Fairfield is a city in and the county seat of Jefferson County, Alabama and is part of the Birmingham–Hoover Metropolitan Area. Originally named Corey, Fairfield occupies a total area of 3.5 square miles, and is home to approximately 12,000 residents. Recognized as a rural boomtown, Fairfield has built a thriving economy, largely based on agriculture and manufacturing entrepreneurship.

Fairfield was planned as a model city by the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company to house workers in their new Fairfield Works plant (now owned by U.S. Steel). Though the United States steel making industry has gone through a decline during the latter half of the 20th Century, U.S. Steel's Fairfield Works continues to be a major employer. Advances in steel-making technology have enabled the Works to produce roughly the same amount of product as during the 1950s, but with a much smaller workforce. Portions of the Works have been closed over the years, but many parts of the complex have been reopened by smaller industries, some of which are steel-related.
