Jackson Lumber was based in Lockhart, Ala, just "a rock's throw" from the Florida border (and adjacent to Florala, Fla). According to the 2003 Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) account, the town was laid out with all the amenities. "Everything imaginable was provided -- a mill, a park, a well-stocked mercantile store, gleaming white houses and even tree-lined streets ....Truly unique."
"Still, like all lumber towns," the ACES article continues, "Lockhart was a "cut-out-and-get-out" operation from the very start.
"'They figured they had about 40 years of timber, virgin timber, to be cut,' recalls Belinda Carnley, a community activist and lifelong Lockhart resident. "And they were right on the money."
The 5 was scrapped in 1942.
