To Our Customers and Friends,

Thank you for helping to save the oak trees of Montrose with the purchase of this coverlet.......

The Montrose Garden Club was founded in 1946 with the specific purpose of maintaining and preserving the 200 year-old live oak trees that gracefully shade the lanes of this historic village. For over 50 years fifty-two trees have been cared for with the monies raised by a dedicated group of women who share a common interest in protecting the environment for the enjoyment of future generations. A total amount of over $75,000 has been invested in the preservation of these magnificent oaks. Other than general operating expenses, every penny the club raises is earmarked for the care and maintenance of the existing oak trees.

The Baldwin County Coverlet is the club's newest fund-raising project. Your purchase of this item will help ensure that the oak trees will be around for years to come and will continue to contribute to the overall beauty and historical significance of Baldwin County.

We invite you to drive through Montrose and view the beautiful old live oaks we are committed to saving.

ABOUT THE COVERLET.....


Each incorporated city or town in Baldwin County was asked to submit a picture to depict that particular town on the coverlet. The Garden Club selected pictures for the historic sights. The coverlet border is made up of the names of 25 communities which are a vital part of this growing south Alabama county. Also included are Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico which border Baldwin County on the west and south. Citizens of Baldwin County enjoy a rich and diverse environment which includes an enviable climate, incredible vistas ranging from the piney woods in the north to the glistening white sands and blue waters of the Gulf, a surplus of rivers and streams, ample wildlife, endless opportunity for outdoor sports, and, most importantly, some of the
greatest people in the world !
