Secret Art Trail – Mae Jemison Segment
The newest addition to the Downtown Trails is in honor of Mae Jamison who was the first African American female in space. Located in Big Spring park, all of Mae’s quotes have been painted uniquely onto power boxes. Not only is this a great reminder of the space industry opportunities Huntsville has to offer but is also a symbol of what anyone can accomplish.
Huntsville is continually updating these trails and is even creating a brand new one coming this Spring that we can’t wait to hear more about! For more details or to find out more about what Huntsville has to offer visit the Downtown Huntsville site.
