Pigeon Roost Road

Leading to a large roost of the now-extinct passenger pigeon, this road followed partly the present routes of Lauderdale and Marshall Avenues, and of Lamar Boulevard. Before settlement days it was a dry-weather trail used by the Chickasaw Indians. It was improved into a plank road about 1855, and frequently so called.
