Live Oak Landing has always been a family friendly environment, allowing visitors and locals to revive themselves in the serenity and charm of the Delta. Live Oak Landing was originally built on family-owned land by John and Davida Hastie, in 1948. The Hasties operated Live Oak Landing for 32 years, during which time the Landing become a second home to their family and the residents of Stockton, Alabama. A much-loved safe space, many local children learned to fish and waterski during the Hastie’s time, but more importantly, they also learned about nature and developed a greater appreciation and love for the uniqueness of the Delta environment. Davida Hastie was described as “One of South Alabama’s foremost historians and a lover and preserver of natural resources. She was committed to the environment long before environmental concerns became more popular in the mainstream. She left her mark on the woods and waters of this area which she loved so dearly.” This love of the natural environment was passed on to the many generations who spent time at Live Oak Landing.
