Gadsden Street is an east-west street in south Pensacola, named for James Gadsden. Primarily a residential street, Gadsden traverses the Old East Hill and East Hill districts, and continues into West Pensacola. Gadsden also extends into East Pensacola Heights east of Bayou Texar. Gadsden Street is named in honour of James Gadsden. Before streets north of Wright/east of 8th Avenue were named, that part of Gadsden Street was 4th Street.
Gadsden's current western terminus is best set at Lynch Street in West Pensacola, although there are two short, unconnected spans signed Gadsden just west of Lynch. From Lynch, Gadsden travels easterly, with interruptions between Kirk and Grandview Streets and Tarragona and Hayne Streets (for Interstate 110), to Bayou Texar. Gadsden picks up again on the east bank of Bayou Texar and travels easterly five blocks to its eastern terminus, southeast of Chipley Avenue, at Pensacola Bay.
