True Southern Home

So beautiful with the azaleas and huge oak trees. You can just feel the southern comfort sitting on the porch with a big glass of lemonade

The house was left empty and unlocked for years. Some of the furnishings were left and amazingly were able to be restored. The Bragg-Mitchell Mansion was the destination that brought us to Mobile, Alabama. We have a genealogy link and the house was impressive. The chandeliers, the fireplaces, and the mahogany staircase. Every bride should be photographed on that staircase.

This place is stunningly gorgeous; an authentic glimpse of the "moonlight and magnolias" South that shows the legend is based in some truth. The tour is decent, but not exceptional, focusing on the details of the furniture, most of which is not original to the house. The place makes its money from rentals, so it is not exactly a pure...

When in historical towns there are many homes in which to visit. It was not my intention to stop here but some how I ended up in the neighborhood and may the choice to view the home. I had my own town and enjoyed it very much

I have been to many plantation homes in Louisiana, so this was not new. It was your average plantation home of the early 1800s. Very clean and well kept. Good story.

Based on reviews we made this a stop on our way to the Natchez Fall Pilgramage. It was a perfect stop, the mansion and grounds were well kept and well appointed. Our tour guide was very sweet and importantly, very knowledgeable. We enjoyed learning about the history of the property as well as the era. Worth a detour if you... More

I love the Bragg! I had my own wedding reception here in April 2011. This is the perfect venue for an outdoor party and use the inside for the cake etc. I'm so glad we had our reception here and I enjoy attending other ceremonies at the Bragg

This was one of THE best home tours we have ever experienced. We actually had a private tour that day; but we did go in the off season. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer every question we had about the architecture and the history. This place can be rented for weddings and other events; a... More
