Favorite thing: Loxley is a town of about 1700 (up 25% since 2000) located near Interstate 10 along US Highway 90 and Alabama Highways 59 and 16 in Baldwin County in Southern Alabama not far from the Gulf of Mexico. There was already a settlement here called Bennett when John Loxley came here from Chicago in 1870 and opened a sawmill and a store to support the workers. Soon a town sprang up that was named after Loxley. In 1906 the railroad came to town and the town prospered. Loxley was incorporated in March 1957.
Loxley has a small historic district with a few buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. The most interesting one to me, and the only one listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is Saint Raphael’s Catholic Church which was built in 1920 and now houses the public library.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory would be of a girl named Robyn I spent some time with here, years ago. I thought it was neat since she was Robyn of Loxley.Related to:
