15 Dec 1936. Saw this and thought I would share.
Can anyone tell me who to talk to about replacing the "Bagdad Village" signs?
I found a news article from 1994 Pensacola paper discussing that the home 2 doors down from your main building (museum) was donated by the son (Constantine Mitchell) - his mother being Leila Martin Mitchell. If I am correct the house # would be 4520 Church Street. From what I gathered from the article the house was later sold to finance additional improvement for the Association. I would be very interested in any documentation, photos, letters, etc that you might have in your records about this transaction. I am doing research on Leila (my 2nd cousin) and want to make this part of her story. I did call the number and left my name and phone # as well. Look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Betty Mitchell Busch [email protected]

Sorry for such a late notice. He will reschedule at a later date.

Had a great time yesterday talking and speaking to 45 young professionals at the Bagdad Museum. I was inspired by their energy and dedication to making Santa Rosa county a better place to live. Thanks to Randy Jorgenson for speaking and Tim Tolbert of the City of Milton for attending. Also thanks to Elaine Willis for assisting. I am reassured of our future in this beloved county and our beloved Bagdad. Still the boyhood home of Bubba and best kept secret in the South.
