Local Girl Scouts publish Trussville Trails booklet
By Gary Lloyd
Six local Girl Scouts have published a booklet about the trails in Trussville.
“Trussville Trails” was published by Girl Scout Troop 872, which consists of Alex, Gracen, Haley, Tinley, Anna and Joriann. Last names weren’t provided.
Publishing the six-page booklet was the girls’ Bronze Award project.
For the past two years, Troop 872 planned and implemented a historic 1.8-mile walk in the heart of Trussville, highlighting some of the city’s historic markers, monuments and landmarks.
The booklet includes information about the city of Trussville, the Trussville Furnace, Veterans Memorial, Happy Hollow District Bridge, Cahaba Project, the Truss family, the Cahaba Baptist Cemetery and Confederate Storehouse.
All the stops on this walk have been presented in a free booklet that includes a poem on each page, historic facts and QR codes. Scanning the QR codes allows you to watch a video of one of the Girl Scouts reading each poem.
The booklets are available at the Trussville Area Chamber of Commerce at 225 Parkway Drive in Trussville. Call the chamber at 205-655-7535 if you would like the booklet emailed to you.
