Stockton Heritage Museum

Stockton

Inside the Stockton Heritage Museum, you will learn about Maj. Robert Farmar; William Bartram and the Evening Primrose; Alabama’s first sawmill; the Tensaw Delta and Bottle Creek Mound, both National Landmarks. You will learn about the Ellicott line that divided the Mississippi Territory and Spanish West Florida, and how it impacted Stockton; about the Federal Road and how this seemly sleepy little place called Stockton was once a major settlement, second only to Mobile. Connected to Mobile by daily steam boat, and with Montgomery by a stage line, nearly all travel from Mobile to Montgomery was by this route. Learn how the timber and sawmill industry served as the life blood of the community, sustaining it long after the L & N Railroad destroyed its importance as a shipping port, and how the community continued to survive even after the two family owned sawmills closed that supplied the income of most of the residents.
