John Cadwallader laid out the town of Birmingham, seven miles west of Huntingdon on the Little Juniata River in December, 1797. He hoped to make it a leading commercial center but his plans never materialized. In 1824 the town had nine houses and by 1840 had 235 residents. The town was incorporated as a borough on April 14, 1828. The Birmingham School for girls has become an acknowledged leader among preparatory schools in the east. The population of Birmingham was 196 in 1910; 197 in 1920 and 191 in 1930.
