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.”

“The origins of Mardi Gras can be traced to medieval Europe, passing through Rome and Venice in the 17th and 18th centuries to the French House of the Bourbons. From here, the traditional revelry of “Boeuf Gras,” or fatted calf, followed France to her colonies. On March 2, 1699, French-Canadian explorer Jean Baptiste Le Moyne Sieur de Bienville arrived at a plot of ground 60 miles directly south of New Orleans, and named it “Pointe du Mardi Gras” when his men realized it was the eve of the festive holiday. Bienville also established “Fort Louis de la Louisiane” (which is now Mobile) in 1702. In 1703, the tiny settlement of Fort Louis de la Mobile celebrated America’s very first Mardi Gras. …” READ the entire history on this website,, and may also like to go to this website for more information about Mobile, Alabama’s history of Mardi Gras timeline, Mobile, Alabama was the capital city of the French Louisiana territory but the people were concerned about hurricane destruction so it was moved to New Orleans in 1718.
