The Little Red Schoolhouse has played an important role in Baldwin County's history and will soon be moved to a new location to make it more accessible to the public. The schoolhouse, built in 1920 in Bromley, currently sits behind the Baldwin County Board of Education office in Bay Minette. On March 13th, 2017, it will begin its move to Bicentennial Park in Stockton to sit among other historic buildings.
The building served as a school and classroom for many years before it was moved to the school board location for use as a museum.
Baldwin County's Department of Archives & History is conducting the relocation to afford it a more suitable setting conducive for public tours and field trips. The schoolhouse will join the historic Montpelier Methodist Church, General Store, and a Blacksmith Shop that are already located at Bicentennial Park.
The move will be a two-day process and the county is asking for everyone's patience as the structure is relocated to its new home. For more details about the building, or the move, call the Department of Archives and History at 251.580.2572.
