The Mobile Azalea Trail Maids
Myself with my Azalea Trail Group Picture of myself when I was a Trail Maid

My name is Marcee Hinds and this is my web site project for my EDM 310 class. As a native Mobilian, I am often surprised that many people of Mobile are so unfamiliar with a tradition that has been a part of Mobile's history for over 75 years.

That tradition is the Mobile Azalea Trail Maids.

As a former Trail Maid and current advisor to the present Trail court, I would like to share with you a little insight about the history of the Azalea Trail Maids, who the Trail Maids are, and their importance to the city of Mobile.
