The old homes in Mobiles dating back to the 1800's were magnificently restored. The old mansions, shot gun houses, fort, museums, parks, and public buildings gave you the feeling that you were transported back to the 1800's. The old Oaks added to the beauty of the area.

I grew up in Mobile, and recently went back for the first time in 15 years. The homes, parks, wrought iron scroll work... all took me back to a better time. Very melancholy visit. <3

This is where Joe Cain is buried. A lot of folks like to visit his grave, especially during Mardi Gras. There are a lot of old historic buildings to see, quaint restaurants, etc.

If you are looking for old southern history and intrigue this is the place to visit. Old Mobile is full of history and folklore so brush up on your history before you visit.

Did not get to walk as much, time short. However, the old homes are beautiful, some are in need of repair, which is the sad part. The gardens and yards and the Trees!!! Will return and visit longer in this area, very peaceful and certainly a good picture of the Old South. The history in the cemetery--will spend hours in... More
