Happy Trails to You!!!!
More specifically, the Azalea Trail, which was begun in 1929 as a project by the Mobile Junior Chamber of Commerce (now known as the Mobile Jaycees) and Mr. Sam Lackland. The idea was to plant azaleas, which grow abundantly in this area, alongside streets around the city. Residents enthusiastically complied and the "Azalea Trail" wound through many areas of the city. It was marked by a pink line that was painted along the side of the street. It was a very BIG DEAL to have your house on the Azalea Trail.
