When it became American, the old magazine was modified to become Mobile's first Court House and jail. A portion of jail floor and jail doors can still be seen in the house. In 1854, the building was purchased by Jonathan Kirkbride and converted into a residence. The Conde-Charlotte is now a fascinating house museum. « less
