Received a tour from Ruth. What a hoot. Day was slow, and Ruth walked us around the two floors, explaining the house, history, artifacts, etc. Was a fascinating tour, and extremely educational. Found the connection between the original builder (Mr. John Bragg) to the Confederate General Braxton Bragg (brothers) very interesting. House built in 1855.

I guess the success of a visit to a historic home lies mostly in the skill of the docent. We had a young woman whose vocabulary was that of a high school student so she couldn't offer a whole lot of detail/description about things. There was a certain type of bed maker she mentioned a few times, but she said... More

Stopped by after seeing the reviews on TripAdvisor. It was a nice surprise. Ruth was the guide and what a lovely lady and really made the tour. It was nice chatting with her as we walked through the home. The historical information she shared was interesting. It wasn't just information, but stories of the two families that lived there. The... More

I love this old Mobile home. Have been to many wedding receptions here. You truly get the feel of early Mobile. Love the trees covered in moss, Azalea bushes in bloom are just beautifuland the grounds are so lovely

My wife and I arrived at 2:05. We saw the sign that said they give tours on the hour. There was no one on the tour when we arrived. We rang the bell anyway and was greeted by a tour guide. We were told we had to wait until 3:00 but were welcome to walk the grounds. It was 95... More

There are some stunning pieces here, such as the enormous mirrors in the drawing room and the Cobalt ground finely gilded Sevres vases in the dining room. The restoration and maintenance is thoughtful. They have resisted the temptation to display everything someone drags out of their attic to donate. The proportions of the Greek Revival home are exquisite. I was... More

Beautiful home and nice tour. If you get a chance to attend one of their events or teas...DO! It is lovely and the food is very good! Pimento cheese sandwiches were my favorite!

I used to work there part time some years ago. It has been a while since we visited, but we had a good time, enjoyed all the exhibits too.

It's likely that I would have rated this higher if we could have gone in. I called Thursday evening to check their hours only to arrive on Friday to see a note on the door that they were closed because of a private party. We walked around the grounds anyway and took pictures. As you can see from the pictures... More
