Stockton, Alabama

Gently tucked into the vast woodlands of northern Baldwin County is the very unique little community of Stockton, Alabama, noted for its wide variety of recreational assets, its many historical homes and sites, and its rich heritage. 

The quaint, community of Stockton is just minutes away from Interstate 65, and is easily accessible from Interstate 10.  It is less than 30 minutes from Mobile and Alabama’s Gulf Coast, and  home to the newly created Baldwin County Bicentennial Park. 

Bordered on the south by Interstate 65, and on the west, by the magnificent Mobile-Tensaw Delta that runs the entire length of the community.   Stockton is a community that you should not miss.  It is truly the gateway to the rich history and heritage of Baldwin County.

Only minutes away, to the north of the community, are Fort Mims and the graves of William Weatherford and his mother, Sehoy, Creek Princess of the Wind Clan, Alabama’s first winery, and many other interesting and historical sites.
