Welcome To Baldwin County

Baldwin County, Alabama is the largest county east of the Mississippi River, covering almost 1,600 sq. miles. It was first formed in 1809 by the legislature of the Mississippi Territory. Former home of the Tensas and Creeks, Muscogee Woodland Indians, this area has been influenced by the French, Spanish, English, Scottish, Canadian and Irish; later by the Italians, Greeks, Germans, Swiss and Dutch and now is truly international. The intracoastal waterway links Pensacola to the east with Mobile in the west. Baldwin is bounded on the north by lush woodlands and fertile farmlands and on the south by sparkling beaches, all transected by fresh water creeks and rivers. Baldwin County has well over 200 cemeteries. This is the place for the annual Shrimp Festival and German Sausage Festival, Spanish Moss and oyster shells, salt air and Jubilee. Since its earliest days of pirates and planters, shell banks, salt mines and sugar cane - life is good on Alabama's southern shore.

Your County Guide

The Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance and the Baldwin County Genealogical Society are working together to compile listings and photographs of all of Baldwin County's cemeteries and hope to make these available by this summer. If you know of an obscure or little-known cemetery, we'd like to hear from you. As these cemeteries become available online, please contact us if you know of unmarked graves that we should be aware of. We want everybody to participate in this worthwhile project.

Cemeteries in Need

Currently, we have several cemeteries in need of care and protection and steps need to be taken to assure their preservation. Please call or email with your concerns and also we want to hear from you regarding projects already underway to restore old sites.

Benton Cemetery
Donaldson Plantation Cemetery
Marlow Memorial Cemetery

These cemeteries and others really need your help. Please let one of your new year resolutions be to spend time at one or more cemeteries providing much-needed care.

Join Hands

Please join us and the Alabama Cemetery Preservation Alliance as we "join hands" to preserve an important part of Baldwin County History. Not only will you be able to find the information and tools that you need to establish Perpetual Care for your cemetery, restore it's broken monuments, and find out ways to protect your cemetery from vandals, but you will be able to Register your cemetery with the ACPA, here on this site, as well as search the ACPA databases for cemetery information and burial listings as others submit them. The ACPA is proud to work with the Alabama Historical Commission, as well, to see that you get all the information you need to be successful in this endeavor.
