Andalusia and Covington County

Andalusia is a town of almost 9000 in Southern Alabama. The town was settled in 1841 after extensive flooding caused people to move to higher ground. The county seat was moved to Andalusia in 1844, and it remains the county seat of Covington County today. Andalusia is home to the World Championship Domino Tournament. The county was named after General Leonard Covington of Maryland. The Alabam State Legislature changed the name of the county for two months in 1868 but it was quickly changed back. The bell from the old courthouse, which served from 1897 to 1917, is on the courthouse grounds. Andalusia is a neat town; I liked it!
