Nestled in the pine forests of North Baldwin County, Bay Minette is conveniently located 35 miles northeast of Mobile, Alabama, 45 miles west of Pensacola, Florida, and 75 miles east of Biloxi, Mississippi. Because of our favorable location, we enjoy the economic, social and cultural benefits of the surrounding urban areas while maintaining the charm and relaxed pace of a small southern community.
In addition to being home to a thriving timber industry, our surrounding forests serve as a playground for the southern sportsman, as does the nearby Tensaw River Delta and the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Bay Minette is also surrounded by restored Civil War and early American history sites perfect for history buffs, family picnics, hikers and campers.
Bay Minette has enjoyed steady, managed growth for many years. As the seat of Baldwin County (the second fastest growing county in the state), our residents enjoy many employment opportunities through local government, the county board of education, as well as legal and other professional offices, which support the county government.
