Lockhart, Alabama

Lockhart is a town in Covington County, United States. At the 2010 census the population was 516. Lockhart is located in southern Covington County at 31°0′41″N 86°21′2″W, 1 mile north of the Florida state line. Lockhart is bordered by the town of Florala to the east. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 1.1 square miles, of which 1.1 square miles is land and 0.04 square miles, or 3.53%, is water. Lockhart came into being about 1904 when the Jackson Lumber Company mill was constructed there, the community being a company town. Many streets were named for Native American tribes; the mill was erected to handle the dense forests of yellow pine in what was known as the "Jackson Tract". The town was named for Standard Oil magnate and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania financier, Charles Lockhart. In 1912, the mill employed around a thousand workers and ran 24/7. At that time Lockhart was the largest lumber mill in the United States. Flooring for the famous Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City came from Lockhart.

In 1903 the mill was the center of a peonage scandal. More than a hundred immigrant laborers recruited in cities in the North were held against their will in a walled compound on the site. Company officials were sentenced to as much as eighteen months in jail when convicted but were able to have their sentences reduced by political friends; the milling facility was served by both the Central of Georgia Railroad and the Louisville and Nashville Railroad, connecting through nearby Florala, Alabama. "The mill, closed in 1940, historical accounts offer two reasons. Military enlistments prior to U. S. entry in World War II caused a labor shortage, or company officials sold their holdings and the land to the residents after cutting all the timber in the area and deciding not to wait for replanted timber to mature. Jackson Lumber Company donated much land to the state, replanted and developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps into Geneva State Forest in neighboring Geneva County." This land had little value after it had been clear cut, the practice of the time, being unable to sell the now-deforested acreage during the Great Depression, the company returned it to the state in the 1930s rather than pay taxes on it.

As of the census of 2000, there were 548 people, 229 households, 147 families residing in the town. The population density was 504.1 people per square mile.
