Capshaw, also known as Lux, is an unincorporated community in eastern Limestone County, Alabama, United States. It is located at the intersection of Capshaw, Sanderson and NW Dupree Worthey Roads.
Some residents think the community was named for an early settler, but most authorities think the name is derived from the Chickasaw phrase bok kapassa or oka kapassa, which mean 'cold creek' or 'cold water', respectively. A post office under the name Capshaw was first opened in 1918.[unreliable source?]
