Alabama State Byway at Leeds

Leeds

The business card and other communication vehicles that promote the Leeds Scenic Byway feature this photo of a winding road leading to a mountain. Leeds’ byway, an Alabama State Byway on Alabama State Hwy 119, has been traveled by horses, wagons, and early automobiles. It meanders for eight miles through a rural vista and small town where more than 33 homes, businesses, museums, and cemeteries display county, state or national historic markers. Six interpretative exhibits tell the stories of a pioneer culture that continues to produce war heroes, scholars, athletes, entertainers and builders. Ultimately, Leeds is “Central Park‚Äù to the largely urban Jefferson County, Alabama. It is a getaway for those who love nature and a small-town atmosphere. The scenic byway threads itself through the landscape, knitting together an intensive history of citizens with diverse ancestries, stories of heroism, and the area’s natural beauty.
