Leon Lipscomb Grocery was one of the original grocery stores along Gasoline Alley in east Morgan County and maybe the last one still standing. Closed long ago, it would be wonderful if someone reopened it!
Gasoline Alley thrived back in the mid-to-late 20th century. This was due to lower taxes just across the Tennessee River from south Huntsville and so gas was cheaper. It declined when the taxes in Morgan County became nearer to Madison County taxes, so not much reason to cross the river anymore.
