Thomaston History

Thomaston is located in Eastern Marengo County, Alabama. At the 2000 census the population was 383. The area was first settled in the early 1800s by people from Virginia and the Carolinas who migrated to the area in search of land. The community was named in 1892, and the town of Thomaston was incorporated in 1901. Thomaston has one historic district, the Thomaston Central Historic District, which encompasses the core of the town. Additionally, there are three individually listed properties on the National Register of Historic Places: the Thomaston Colored Institute, C. S. Golden House, and Patrick Farrish House.

Mayor's Corner

Mayor Jeff Laduron As not only the Mayor, but as a long time citizen, I would like to welcome you to the Town of Thomaston webpage.  If I had to describe our town in one sentence, I would have to say that Thomaston is a modern day Mayberry.  A small town where most residents know one another, where you can't drive by the town pond without spotting someone fishing, and a place where people are constantly volunteering their time to help others in need.
