History

In the first days of Baldwin County, the Town of McIntosh Bluff, Alabama (now in Mobile County,Alabama, west of Baldwin County) on the Tombigbee River was the County Seat. After being transferred to the Town of Blakeley in 1810, the county seat was later moved to the City of Daphne in 1868. In 1900, by an Act of the Legislature of Alabama, the county seat was authorized for relocation to the City of Bay Minette, however, the City of Daphne resisted relocation. The citizens of Bay Minette moved the county records from Daphne in the middle of the night on October 11–12, 1901[3] and delivered them to the City of Bay Minette - where Baldwin County's County Seat remains to this day.[4] A mural for the new post office built in 1937 was commissioned by the WPA and painted by Hilton Leech of Bridgeport, CT to commemorate this event.[3]
