 thumbnail Barrineau Park: Farmland

Barrineau Park, lying about 5 miles west of Molino and within a couple of miles of the Perdido River is a picturesque rural community of low hills, farms, and woods. It was named after William Capers Barrineau of South Carolina, who moved there in 1900 and bought over 11,000 acres of land for turpentine and timber. After the timber supply was exhausted, he brought in about 50 families, mostly Hungarians, to farm the land in intensive small truck farms.
