In the late 1800’s, an ambitious young man by the name of Frank W. Slocomb settled just west of Dothan, Alabama with his family.  He established a business in the midst of all the pines; the Slocomb Lumber Company.  Mr. Slocomb and his brother, Will, established a successful naval store as well.  Frank Slocomb also became the postmaster. 

A community began to flourish after the railroad was built and the town became known as Slocomb.  Slocomb was considered the “main stop” between Atlanta, Georgia and Mobile, Alabama by Central of Georgia trains.

Today the Slocomb Lumber Company is still in business.  Stories continue to be passed down from generation to generation about this quaint, candid farming town.  Farmers are proud of their hard work and produce.  The “Tomato Festival” is the biggest and one of the best in the region.  The 3rd weekend of June a huge celebration abrupts; and the locally grown scrumptious, ripened to their peak, red fruit is picked right from the vine; a great different type/ variety of tomatoes can be purchased at the festival, the most popular being the Globe Tomatoes.  Did you know tomatoes were one of George Washington Carver’s favorite foods?

Slocomb is part of the Dothan, Alabama Metropolitan Statistical Area in Geneva County.  A travel distance to Dothan is only a matter of minutes.  In less than 2 hours from Slocomb are beaches, other tourist attractions, outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, boating and golf, beautiful gardens and parks to visit. 

The town of Slocomb takes pride in their history and heritage and we welcome new “settlers’ to join our growing community and economically flourishing area. 

Participate in our next “Tomato Festival” – and you will be back!
