Bessemer's heritage is of an industrial origin. Its founder was Henry Fairchild DeBardeleben, a general manager at the Red Mountain Iron and Coal Company (later renamed to the Eureka Mining Company). First named Brooklyn, DeBardeleben changed the name to Bessemer after Sir Henry Bessemer, the inventor of the Bessemer Process which made mass production of steel possible.
Bessemer has changed over the years, especially since the exodus of the steel industry from the United States. One thing that has expanded but otherwise stayed constant, is the Bright Star, which claims to be the longest continuously running restaurant in the state since opening its doors in 1907. The city also features Alabama Adventure, the second most popular attraction in Alabama. Let Local Tom be your guide to this city, conveniently located near Birmingham.
