Seale had a population of 343 in 1950. Its main product was turpentine. The turpentine business is no longer in operation. From its establishment to present day, it is a rural farm and cattle community. During the 1960s a lot of military personnel assigned to Ft. Benning and deployed to South Vietnam during the Vietnam War settled there and brought with them a new generation. The small school of Chavala swelled with students during that period. The Court House that is of historical value, lay unoccupied and in bad need of repair during that period.
