A Message from the Mayor



I take great pride in the opportunity to represent and lead our beautiful City of Daphne. Daphne is an active, family-oriented community blessed with beautiful scenery, rich history, and strong quality of life that complement our great schools, established retail sector, and growing business environment.

Located in the heart of the Eastern Shore, our “Jubilee City” has grown from the city’s incorporation in 1927 to being the largest city in Baldwin County today.  Daphne has become known as a Community of Opportunity, largely in part to the tremendous growth we have seen in recent years.  Our success can be attributed to 
our strong sense of community, which is the culmination of our heritage, southern charm, recreational opportunities, and economic success combined with our most valuable asset - the welcoming and hospitable community of Daphne. 

I invite you to discover Daphne by exploring our parks and trails, visiting our historic landmarks, experiencing Olde Towne Daphne, patroning our local restaurants and retailers, along with the many other ways to enjoy our city and to see for yourself why Daphne is such a special place to live, work and play.

Dane Haygood
