The Red Bay Museum, Arts & Entertainment Center, Bay Tree Council for the Performing Arts, Cypress Cove Farm, and a school, hospital, churches, library, newspaper, radio/television, civic organizations and golf course blend past with present in providing an enhanced quality of life. Bear Creek Lakes, surrounding the place Native Americans once called home, are popular recreational areas. Holding sentinel to the north are Freedom Hills, fertile with folklore and lush southern forest. In 2007, Red Bay began its Centennial Celebration underneath a canopy of radiant crepe myrtles with the official proclamation during High Noon in the Park. The story unfolded through mini-celebrations, Founders Fest, and the Big Picnic 100th Birthday Party. A time capsule placed in Bay Tree Park and containing artifacts from the year of remembering, will be exhumed in 2058.
