Choccolocco is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in Calhoun County, Alabama, United States. As of the 2010 census, its population was 2,804. It was founded in 1832.
The publish Choccolocco is an anglicization of the Creek words “chahko lago” (“big shoals”) or “choko rakko” (“big house”); sources vary.
The community gained brief notoriety in 2001 when The Daily Show aired a piece upon the “Choccolocco Monster”, a part of local folklore almost sightings of a perplexing creature in the Place in the late 1960s. An October 2001 article in the Anniston Star newspaper revealed that the being was, in fact, local resident Neal Williamson. As a teenager, Williamson would don his costume (consisting of a cow skull and a sheet) and get the attention of passing cars by jumping out of the woods onto the roadside, often stunning motorists.
Choccolocco first appeared on the 1890 U.S. Census as a town, but did not appear once again until 2010 with it was made a census-designated place (CDP).
