Loxley is a town in Baldwin County, Alabama, United States, and about 22 miles east of downtown Historic Mobile, Alabama. As of the 2010 census, the population of the town was 1,817 with a median age of around 35 years.

“John Loxley came to this area at the turn of the century (1900) to establish a lumber camp that included a commissary and sawmill. A large number of men came with him, and then stayed to settle and marry here. John Loxley is considered the founder of Loxley. There was a small village named Bennet here when Mr. Loxley arrived.

In 1920 the businesses in Loxley were an egg store, grocery store, two general merchandise stores, a train depot, drug store, telegraph office, land office, repair garage, post office, bank, hotel, butcher shop, orange packing shed, cement block plant, a blacksmith, a feed and lumber store. The main road was Highway 90; it was not paved then.”

“During World War II, Loxley was a satellite prison camp for the influx of German, Nazi, and Italian soldiers captured by American Troops. There were so many Germans captured and brought here that camps were put all over the country to house these POWs. The fall of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge saw many younger soldiers in the camps. The Loxley camp was primarily one used to work the POWs in the woodlands and sawmills.”
