Being from New Orleans I've seen cemeteries time and time again. This one is unique the way it's hidden behind the Mobile Main library. It's full of history from founders, to even gruesome stories. Check this piece of history out.

Tons of charm, history, and beauty on Church Street and the downtown area. Too many to see in one weekend. We've spent 2 separate weekends in downtown Mobile and still haven't seen it all. I highly recommend the cemetary on Church Street. We can't wait to return.

This was an interesting place to take a stroll. We visited the resting place of Joe Cain and thought it was really neat that visitors had decorated his grave with Mardi Gras beads and doubloons. I would not visit at night! Would be very spooky seeing as how old this cemetery is.

This little treasure was tucked away between the library and the genealogical studies building. This is the third best grave yard I've been in so far, first being in Salem, MA, and second being in New Orleans, LA. This was a beautiful little excursion in Mobile although its not in the best part of town, it isn't in the worst... More

Such sad verses, so many forgotten it seems in this very old cemetery, downtown Mobile. Some beautiful headstones and above ground crypts that are ohhh so scary at night if you like hunting for orbs! Got great photos day and night there.

It's not a very long stretch but there are some very charming houses and a big fountain. Park your car at the museum or fort and walk it, It's a nice walk, but be careful of the tree roots. They have broken some of the concrete, so side walk is a little rough in some areas.

While in Mobile we went to the church street area. We decided to first drive around to see where we wanted to start our walk. During the drive we went past the Spanish plaza that looked nice with the fountain and white arches. But as we drove around there were a lot of hotels and not many old homes. So... More
