The Pearl & Leaf Rivers Rails-to-Trails Recreational District, a governing authority, and its "Longleaf Trace" is a joint venture of the counties of Forrest, Jefferson Davis, and Lamar and the municipalities of Bassfield, Hattiesburg, Prentiss, and Sumrall, created by the authority granted in MS Code Section 55-25-1 et seq.  Member counties and municipalities support the district through a one fourth (1/4) mill tax levy on all taxable property in those counties and municipalities comprising the district, for the purpose of providing economic development and multiple recreational opportunities, while improving the quality of life for their citizens.

Donations of railroad memorabilia connected to the Pearl and Leaf River
Railroad are also greatly appreciated. Below is a railroad bell donated
by the Temple family, on display at the Gateway.
