Bay Minette was settled in 1861 as a junction for the Louisville & Nashville Railroad during expansion of the railroad through the region. Railroads provided important economic, communication and transportation links between several southern states, allowing easy transport of goods including timber, ore and agricultural products.
Baldwin County was formed in 1809 by the Mississippi Territorial Legislature about 10 years before Alabama became a state. The county seat was transferred by an act of the Alabama legislature from Daphne to Bay Minette in 1900. The area was occupied between the sixteenth and early nineteenth centuries by the Spanish, French and British prior to the territory becoming part of the United States.
The natural pine forests of Bay Minette were attractive economic resources to industrialists during the development of the area in the late 1800s. Forest industries produced not only timber, pulpwood and paper but organic products like pine oil, tar, pitch and turpentine. The temperate climate and rich soils of the Alabama Coastal Plain allowed production of important agricultural products including cotton, soybeans, potatoes and wheat. Today, oranges, peanuts and pecans are also important crops grown in the area.
The city is home to several pre-Civil War and early American historical sites that reflect the economic and cultural development of the region and the city. Sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places include the First Baptist Church, one of the first brick churches built in the county, and the Late Victorian style Kilcreas House. Sites listed by the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage include the L & N Railroad Depot and the U. S. Post Office, which features a mural painted during the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1937. The Bottle Creek National Historic Landmark, located in the nearby Tensaw River Delta, dates from approximately 1250 and is considered one of the most important mound complexes of the Mississippian Culture.
