Coming of the railroad from Montgomery in 1845 started a new era, with Loachapoka's name revived. It became the trade center for Waverly, Roxana, Rome, Camp Hill, Dudleyville, and Dadeville.

Rousseau's Raiders hit Loachapoka at sun down, Sunday, July 17, 1864, and stayed one day.

Census of 1870 indicated a population of 1,254, but reconstruction, migration, 1873 panic and railroad extension from Opelika to Dadeville in the early 1870's destroyed the town's pre-eminence, Loachapoka was placed on the National Register of historic places May 11, 1973.
