About Baldwin County

Baldwin County CourthouseBaldwin County is older than Alabama and was named after the founder of the University of Georgia, Abraham Baldwin. The county once lay west of the Tombigbee River, but after a series of boundary changes, it moved east of the Mobile and Alabama rivers. Its county seat moved too--from McIntosh Bluff to Blakely, to Daphne, to its current location in Bay Minette in 1868. But the citizens of Daphne, which had only been the county seat for a few months, were reluctant to relinquish the county records to Bay Minette. A group from Bay Minette made up a story that there had been a murder in the south end of the county. When the sheriff and his deputy headed south to investigate, the Bay Minette delegation sneaked into Daphne under the cover of darkness and removed the county records.

Today, Baldwin County is one of the fastest growing counties in the state with a population of more than 180,000. Baldwin County is also home to Standard Furniture, Ace Hardware Distribution Center and Goodrich Aerospace. Its major crops are greenhouse products, peanuts and turfgrass.

Most people in the county have completed 12th grade. There are 28 elementary schools, eight middle schools, seven high schools, two technical schools and one two-year college in the county.

Baldwin County is a major tourist destination, where more than 1 million people flock to the white, sandy beaches of Gulf Shores annually. Other attractions include Malbis Memorial Greek Orthodox Church, Weeks Bay Estuary and Research Reserve, 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center, and Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo.

The Extension office has three full-time and one part-time employee, and houses three Regional Extension Agents. Four-H and Youth Development Programs involve numerous young people in the county. Other popular Extension programs are Master Gardener, Master Environmental Educator, Estate Planning, Consumer and Family Science, and Agriculture Programs.
