|The Baldwin County Bicentennial Park is a 367- acre area in North Baldwin County, which was designated by the Baldwin County Commission during the County's Bicentennial in 2009. The park is dedicated to preserving the county’s rich cultural heritage and leaving a historical legacy for future generations. The Historic Montpelier Methodist Church, located at the Bicentennial Park, was built in 1895 and donated to Baldwin County by the Thomas John Earle family in 2012. The church is a historic landmark in Baldwin County and was previously located in the Blacksher Community. The Church once served as the home of the annual district meetings of the local Methodist churches which were held each fall. While an active church, the congregation was led by a visiting Methodist minister from Stockton, Alabama who traveled by horseback to Blacksher to conduct services every other Sunday. The Church is an exquisite example of 19th century period architecture and still includes its original pews, pulpit, chandeliers and stained-glass windows. |
