*Most of its original residents migrated from Shubuta, Mississippi in the 1930s and 1940s to Albany’s South End, and then on to Rapp Road. Once a few families moved to Albany, a chain migration occurred as family, friends, and church members encouraged their loved ones in the South to relocate to Albany.
