"Join Stockton, Alabama, part of the oldest settlement in Baldwin County and home to Alabama’s first sawmill, as it celebrates its history and heritage. Step back in time to the days when logging along the Mobile-Tensaw Delta was done with mules and draft animals. Witness the skills required by the early loggers as professional lumberjacks perform feats of log rolling, boom walking, pole climbing, cross-cut sawing, chainsaw carving, and other early logging skills. Watch as logs are sawn with portable sawmills. Cane and grist mills along with many other living history demonstrations show how life was in the early days of logging and sawmills. Live music throughout the day. Juried “folk art”. Sawmill biscuits, tomato gravy, local fried catfish, & cheese grits prepared by Stagecoach Café known for its down home, southern-style cooking. Only 1.5 miles off I-65 on the beautiful grounds of Baldwin County’s Live Oak Landing in Stockton, AL. Visit FB page "Community of Stockton" for pictures and more details
