Red Hill Spring
59818 AL-59, Stockton, AL
Just eight miles north of Stockton, on Highway 59, is Red Hill Spring in the Latham Community – once a part of the old Tensaw Settlement. Tensaw Indians used this spring centuries before Europeans and Africans. The earliest American settlers used this spring. In fact, the shortest leg on the Stockton stagecoach route ran from Stockton to Red Hill Spring – only 8 miles. It was here the stagecoach drivers watered their horses. Travelers and residents of north Baldwin County still use Red Hill Spring!
Red Hill Spring is an artesian well, though the county capped the spring and installed a discharge pipe to make it easier for people to fill their jugs. It is a 5th magnitude spring that produces 40 gallons of water per minute – 2,400 gallons per hour. The water flows under natural pressure without pumping. Red Hill spring water is cool, pure and delicious! Help yourself; it has always been free!
