Andalusia Overview

Andalusia is a town of almost 9000 (up 3% since 2000) located at the intersection of U.S. Highways 29 and 84 in Covington County 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 Alabama 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. The Covington County Courthouse was completed in 1916 using a Beaux Arts style design with some Italianate touches.

Andalusia has a nice historic district with several buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. There are 2 districts and 5 individual locations in Andalusia listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Andalusia also boasts a very nice Veterans Park, honoring the men and women who have served the country in the military. There is also a nice museum, the “Three Notch Museum” located in the old railroad depot.
