This is an interesting cemetary to visit as the graves are from the 1700-1800's. However, the neglect of the grounds is very sad. The only graves that appear to have any upkeep attention are the ones for Joe Cain and his wife. The City of Mobile should provide better care to this historical sacred place.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stroll through this walkable, quiet neighborhood of beautiful and historic homes. Love that the historic preservation folks have identified so many homes and their histories.

Such a beautiful area. Takes you back in time to beautiful simplier times. The houses with the sheilds are over 75 years old and kept historically correct. The sheild is given once a year by the historical society. Just beautiful and serene.

Ran up and down Government Street (and Dauphin for that matter). Oakleigh Garden District and Church Street Historic District are wonderful little finds off of the beaten path. Plan to take you time and enjoy the view of both.

Spanish Plaza park was created to commemorate the Spanish link and to commemorate Malaga, Spain. It is located between Church street and Government street. Beautiful statues and benches to honor the various cities in Spain were also present. A very pleasant park to know the Spanish connection to Mobile.

My family went to Mobile for the day. I looked up the things to do and this was one of them. A previous reviewer mentioned the homeless so I knew to be aware. We found the cemetery by chance and parked in the library parking lot. There were loiters on the steps and we had to find our way to... More

This a great old cemetery to walk through, but it actually closes at something like 4 p.m., which makes it difficult if you want to have that nice evening lighting by which to take photos.

Nice area to walk around in. The old cemetery is located next to the main library. This building is worth a walk through even if you don't check anything out. They don't build them like that anymore!
