The first mention of the word “Dixie” comes from a legendary cookbook published contains the story of the “Dixie Chicken”. Alabama had an early influence on the south’s cuisine. In fact, one of the first known plantations in the south called Fort Mordon had a plan to grow corn with the help of the newly freed slaves from St. Louis. During this time, the slave trader’s would send the chickens they raised to the city of Montgomery, where they would be processed and sold as food. Because of the popularity of the Dixie Chicken, the term “Dixie” stuck. The state nickname was changed to “Dixie” in later years because the original” Montgomery” was named after a black woman who became the town’s first black mayor.
As the state grew into what it is today, the city of Montgomery expanded its boundaries to include what we call the “Pike”. This is because during the time the city was a major textile manufacturing center. The “Pike” referred to a large number of waterways that connected various cotton mills located in what we know today as Montgomery, AL. The most famous of these was the “Pike”, also known as the “Panhandle”.
Another part of the city that has a long standing history is the Tuscaloosa schools. When the University of Alabama was first built in 18mingles, the name of the school was Tuscaloosa. The name was changed to Tuscaloosa because the University wanted to make it easier for those people who were from the southern part of the state to get to the University of Alabama.
