U S 51 - Gulf Coast Route

Recommended Posts

Found this tid bit in the Memphis, TN, news section on the internet this morning. Not sure just how this relates - it appears that 1937 was the year that U S 51 was finished all the way.


75 years ago: 1937

Jackson, Miss. — Detour signs will be torn down in Mississippi tomorrow on Highway 51 — the Great Lakes, via Memphis. To the Gulf Coast route — and Governor White and a 60-car caravan will blaze a trail for tourists to Mississippi's "American Riviera."
