A spin through the Baker Mercantile gift shop is the perfect way to cap a visit to the Baker Block Museum. Filled with collectibles, antiques, books and toys, the Mercantile is the place to find something special for any occasion—birthday, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, even stocking stuffers for Christmas.
The Okaloosa County history series, a series of books written and published by the North Okaloosa Historical Association, is available for sale in the Baker Mercantile. These books cover local areas and topics specific to Okaloosa County and sell for $20 each. NOHA members receive a 10% discount.
The Mercantile also has a limited quantity of volumes I and II of the Okaloosa County heritage books. They sell for $53 each. These books contain a history of Okaloosa County’s pioneer families, industry, schools, churches, family stories and genealogies. Published in the early 2000s, these books are no longer in publication, but the Mercantile has a limited supply.
Any of the books may be purchased at the store, on eBay, by email at or by calling the Museum at 850-537-5714.
