Florala history:

Great history page about Florala with comprehensive information and many pictures from the past.

Excerpts from the above history page: "The town of Florala is located at the junction of highways 15 and 55, in the southeast corner of the country. A beautiful little city, with wide streets, it borders on the north shores of Lake Jackson, which is partly in Florida and partly in Alabama. The name Florala is taken front first letters of both names."

"Among the earliest settlers was a man named McDade, whose real name was McDavid, but who for some reason changed his name to McDade. For many years Lake Jackson was known as McDades Pond."

"As time passed, other settlers arrived in the area until the population grew which warranted the establishment of a post office on January 11, 1875. The post office was established in the home of Mr. Hughes, who had been named postmaster, and was named Lake City, Alabama. The name of the community was changed to Lakeview Alabama, on May 18, 1877, and finally to Florala, on June 22 1891, this name being derived by assigning the first four letters of Florida and the first three letters in Alabama."
