The museum house, built of brick by the French pre-dates Ft. Conde which was constructed in the 1720's. It served originally as a magazine. 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.

My husband and I spent a few days in Mobile. We went to this home the day after Christmas, but didn't see any lights on inside and no cars around, so assume they were closed for the Christmas weekend. But the outside of the home is beautiful with a large patio on the side of the home. A beautiful Christmas... More

The tour guides were knowledgeable and entertaining with the telling of the history. This house has served from home to jail in its long life.

Very nice small house museum. Interesting history and areas decorated for each flag and period of Mobile history. Exterior garden on west side of home carries on the theme as well. Worth a visit.

There were two "Southern Belles" giving tours; one on first floor and one upstairs. Both equally entertaining !! They told lots of stories and gave a good history lesson.

Children are not allowed "because it is a museum with antiques".... hmmm. First time my (well behaved) children were not allowed to visit a museum. Should probably advertise as an adult only facility.

I was impressed with the knowledgeable docents who showed us through the house and back courtyard. The home has displays of French, British, colonial, Spanish and confederate era furnishings. I have toured many historic homes and this one is one of the best I have seen, partly because of the detailed information we were given. For $5 an adult, it... More

Fort Conde, a rebuilt replica of the 1700's fort that guarded Mobile is a lovely spot that challenges the imagination to relive the exciting days of attack and chivalry that the soldiers lived out in those historic 18th century years that Mobile was becoming a city of distinction. It is a delight for children of all ages and adults who... More

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
