About Us

The Baldwin County Archives are housed in the Tolbert M. Brantley Building named in honor of former County Attorney and long-time Bay Minette lawyer whose dedication to the establishment of a dedicated archives facility led to the present Department of Archives and History.

Mission Statement

We tell the story of the people of Baldwin County by preserving records and artifacts of historical value and promoting a better understanding of Baldwin County's History.

Preserving the Past For The Future!
Family Photographs provide a window into the past and reveal many details about our ancestors and where we come from. Photographs document the way the family home looked, the clothes grandma wore, your resemblance to Uncle Frank, and the heirlooms proudly handed down through many generations. Photographs help us to understand who we are by illuminating those who came before us. We need to preserve these photographs to enable future generations to enjoy the pleasures of seeing the past.

If you have family photos and genealogy information, stop by our office, Monday-Friday between the hours of 9:00am and 3:00pm. We will preserve this information at no cost to you. This will also give you an opportunity to tour the facility and learn the collections as well!
