This fort is an 80% reproduction of the original fort (no stockade). You can touch cannon, go into the small holding cell, and read all sorts of interesting things about the fort's history.

Great welcome from the people on site and a very interesting place to visit. This is a replica of the original fort and sets out Mobile's development and history under 5 different flags and rulers.

Staff was extremely helpful with suggestions on how to spend the few hours we would be spending in Mobile. Fort is very interesting, free parking, maps and brochures. They have a great map that shows a driving tour of Mobile with blurbs on historical sites.
