When it became American, the old magazine was modified to become Mobile's first Court House and jail. A portion of jail floor and jail doors can still be seen in the house. In 1854, the building was purchased by Jonathan Kirkbride and converted into a residence. The Conde-Charlotte is now a fascinating house museum. « less

We tried to visit this house with our grandchildren. The sign for the house stated a price for children, however, when we knocked on the door, the woman who answered said this was not for children. We tried to explain that out granddaughter really wanted to see the house, but she still turned us away! I love visiting Mobile, but... More

We love history and this was a great unique way to learn the history of Mobile! We depend on TripAdvisor to help us out! We had wanted to also visit Fort Conde while here, two for one. But it was closed due to some repair work. But the History Museum was close by so enjoyed that, too. Free parking and... More

This small museum/home is hard to find but well worth it. Gives you the feeling that it is haunted.

We visited this after a trip to the Museum of Mobile down the street. I was worried that my 8 and 10 year old boys would be bored but the guides answered all their questions, made the tour very very interesting and had a passion for the house and possessions.
