Living in Bessemer, AL

Bessemer was founded in 1886 by Henry Fairfield DeBardeleben, who wished to create a city that would become a center for steel production. He named the city after Sir Henry Bessemer, the inventor of the open-hearth method of steel production. The population exploded within two years, and today, Bessemer is still a haven of opportunity for Alabama residents. People here are friendly and welcoming, and enjoy tactile history in the town's Historic Lakewood neighborhood. Local residents can enjoy Alabama's Southern comforts without paying high living expenses. Bessemer's cost of living index of 87.8 is well below the United States average.
