The area that is now located within Lanett was first settled in the 1840s, primarily by former citizens of West Point, Georgia, on the east bank of the Chattahoochee River. The two communities shared close ties, with children in the new community, named Bluffton at the time, attending school in West Point. Bluffton was incorporated in 1865 or 1866; its name probably derives from it being situated on a bluff overlooking the river.

The Lanett Cotton Mills opened in 1894 and remained the area's main employer until the late twentieth century. The town changed its name to Lanett in February 1895; it is a combination of the last names of textile magnates Lafayette Lanier and Theodore Bennett. The first water system was constructed in 1896.

The site of Fort Tyler, the last Confederate fort to fall during the War Between the States, is partially located within the city limits of Lanett. The Griggs-Simmons House; Homeland, the Boykin House; Old Lanett High School; and Temple Beth-El are listed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage.
