             Ribbon Cutting for Museum Trail

     

                    Museum Trail Opens

    The Museum Trail, Jackson’s first paved scenic pathway which connects downtown with LeFleur’s Bluff State Park.
    The 2.5-mile Museum Trail follows the abandoned GM&O Railroad from Downtown Jackson through Greater Belhaven and along the eastern border of LeFleur’s Bluff State Park. The rail-trail portion of the trail is now complete and runs from Laurel Street to the entrance of the Mississippi’s Farmers Market on Jefferson Street. The Museum Trail provides access to four remarkable museums and three parks: the Mississippi History Museum, Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, Mississippi Children’s Museum, Mississippi Museum of Natural Science, Belhaven Heights Park, Laurel Street Park, LeFleur’s Bluff State Park.
    The Museum Trail is made possible through federal grants from the Federal Highway Administration appropriated by the Mississippi Department of Transportation and the Central Mississippi Planning and Development District, with grant dollars matched by generous financial contributions from the private sector.

    We thank all of our contributors for supporting this project: Carol Pigott and Dr. Tom Fenter/ Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi, John and Lucy Shackleford Fund/Community Foundation for Mississippi, Ray Neilsen, Billy and Jan Mounger, Jennifer Welch, Mississippi Beverage Association/ Ron Aldridge and other individual contributions.

    More information on the Museum Trail may be found on the Jxn Trailblazers website or on Facebook @museumtrail.
