Finding a mailbox in Whistler can be overwhelming, but your search doesn’t have to be. If you are looking for a mailbox in Whistler, you have options.

Whistler was an unincorporated community in Mobile County, until the 1950s when it was annexed into neighboring Prichard. The founding of Whistler, in the 1850s, coincided with construction of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad. The M & O, an early land grant railroad, eventually extended from Mobile to the Ohio River, and beyond to St. Louis, Missouri, and Chicago, Illinois. The town, seven miles north-northwest of Mobile, developed around the M & O shops. Whistler was named for famous railroad construction engineer and West Point Military graduate George Washington Whistler, who was father of James McNeill Whistler. The younger Whistler was painter of "Arrangement in Grey and Black," better known as "Whistler's Mother." Currently the US Postal Service ZIP code 36612 is accepted as Whistler. Eight Mile Creek flows along much of the northern side of Whistler, before joining Chickasabogue, a tributary of the Mobile River. During Whistler's heyday, both creeks provided popular swimming holes for cooling off during hot summer months. U.S. Route 45, the southern terminus of which is in Mobile, passes through Whistler en route to Chicago and on to Lake Superior, in Michigan's upper peninsula. Most modern-day travelers use Interstate 65, which passes on the eastern edge of the town. I-65 goes from Mobile to the shores of Lake Michigan, just east of Chicago at Gary, Indiana. Whistler was annexed into the City of Prichard in the 1950s, thus the Prichard 36612 ZIP Code. At that time, many historic Whistler street names were changed, due to duplication with Prichard street names or to continue Prichard street names. The annexation of Whistler and neighboring Eight Mile resulted in the highest census population ever for Prichard: 47,371.
