Azaleas put on a show at the Starr Family Home

By Megan Maxwell, Starr Family Home Site Staff

We’re fortunate to have had the biggest and best display of azaleas in Marshall right here on the grounds of the historic site.
Mrs. Ruth Starr Blake receives credit for the profusion of blooms, since she began planting azaleas here 50 years ago.
Most of the bushes bloom in shades of pink, which was one of her favorite colors. We had visitors out this year taking photographs surrounded by nature’s show.
** Starr Family Home is located in Marshall on the corner of Travis and S. Grove streets in the Texas Forest Trail Region.
