Benjamin F. Roden formed the Clifton Land Company in 1886 to develop this area. The development was reorganized in 1889 as the South Birmingham Land Company.
Theodore Smith, nurseryman and florist, moved here from Bedford, New York in the 1880's and developed the area as his home and business. Smith named the property Rosedale Park.
Smith sold residential lots to his workers and others he recruited to the area, the best known of which was Damon Lee from Eufaula, Alabama. Lee would emerge as a respected and beloved businessman and community leader.
On February 11, 1927 the merger of Rosedale, Edgewood and Grove Park became a new city named Homewood.
