Robertsdale AL

Robertsdale AL is a city in Baldwin County Alabama. The population was estimated to be 2,673+ in 2009 and has grown since then.

It is closely tied to its neighbor Orange Beach AL which lies directly on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico within the Ft Morgan peninsula.

Robertsdale is more inland than Orange Beach and is located more towards historic downtown Mobile.

The two communities are also on the western side of the Mobile Bay and face into this bay as opposed to facing outwards towards the Gulf of Mexico on the other (eastern) side (as does Daphne AL).

Robertsdale was named after founder Edward Trowbridge Roberts, who built a lumber company there in 1895. The city is served by Interstate 10 and U.S. Route 90, both major thoroughfares in southern Alabama. Robertsdale is approximately south of Pensacola, Florida, south of Montgomery, and west of New Orleans, Louisiana.

As an unincorporated community, it is governed by Baldwin County. There had been three elections regarding incorporation: one nullified by court order, one defeated, and a third held on June 3, 2010. On the third attempt to become incorporated, according to unofficial returns, incorporation was rejected by a 52% to 48% margin.

Robertsdale is known as "The Indoor Foliage Capital of the World". The Sprott-Riggs Library serves Robertsdale and surrounding communities.

Robertsdale Public Schools are part of the Baldwin County Public School System.
