As of the 2000 census, the population of the city is 16,581. Alabama is a state located in the Southern United States.
The city of Daphne likely dates to the middle of the 16th century with some historical evidence dating to 1557 and the period of Spanish Exploration. Prior to that time the region was populated by a variety of Native American tribes. In 1763, the community of Daphne was established and was most often known simply as the Village. The town of Daphne was officially established in April of 1874 when the Post Office for Daphne was opened.
Local historians record that Daphne was the county seat of Baldwin County until the mid-1800's when all of the county records were moved by an act of the Alabama legislature to Bay Minette, Alabama which remains today as the county's seat of government. Daphne is a part of the Baldwin County Public Schools system. Three elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school serve Daphne.
