Happy Fall Yall!!! It's busy around here and we don't want you to miss a thing!  Here's what's going on This Week in North Baldwin:




Don't forget to save your Greer's Receipts and send them to school with your kids!  Greer's partners with Apples for the Students to offer our schools the opportunity to ear FREE Education Equipment & Supplies! This year's program began September 1st and ends March 18, 2017! Save your receipt and help out our local Schools!



Seven historic homes will be featured, as well as one local church.

The oldest home on the tour was built in 1840.  Others were also built in the late 1800's and early 1900's.  One home is one of the few standing stage coach stops that still exists in Alabama. 
The oldest standing barn in Alabama is on the property of another featured home.
One lovely home, a Victorian Cottage, was constructed by German immigrants in 1840 as a "Row House" for a timber worker.  In the early 1900's, tin ceilings were added in the dining and living rooms.

Sunken cypress logs pulled from the Tensaw Basin partially frame another featured home.

The Stockton United Methodist Church was pastored by a Circuit Rider who rode on horseback or buggy between the six churches in his care.
 
There is much more to see and do in historic Stockton. Come, see for yourself!
