This home stood empty during the 70's until it was gifted to the city and refurbished it is a perfect Greek Revival and a little haunted. giggle Beautiful venue for weddings! Just my thoughts....I have heard local stories!

We have been visiting Mobile on many day excursions, over the last 2 1/2 years, since our move to southern Alabama. Have seen many advertisements mentioning this antebellum home, but this was our first looksee at this home that is listed on the "Historic Home National Register". We were met at the front door, 5 minutes before the hour, by... More

Tours on the hour of this gorgeous pre-civil war home. Period pieces, some original, some donated abound and help create an atmosphere that transports you into a different era. Restored meticulously, beautiful original moldings, walls and floors as well as personal items and pictures give you entree into the previous owners lives. Docents are personally invested in the history and... More

This is a beautiful home both inside and out. Our docent did a great job explaining the history of the home. As other reviewers have mentioned, the tour did focus a great deal on the furniture, some of which was period but not original to the home. A good number of changes have been made to the original home because... More

This was a neat house to tour. We went on a day that the AAA tour book listed it would be open. Then we arrived, we didn't see any vehicles and the door was locked. Turns out that the docent's vehicle was around back, and she keeps it locked until someone comes to the door. I wish I could remember... More

We rented this beautiful, stately old home and it's grounds, to host our daughter's wedding reception. Set back from Spring Hill Avenue with a sweeping circular driveway and expansive lawns, it provides a wonderful backdrop for any large social celebration. They do not provide any catering but most local caterers are familiar with the venue and it's facilities. Three large,... More

The Bragg-Mitchell Mansion is open to the public for guided tours but it also is rented out for private affairs, so call ahead to make certain it is not closed for a private event.We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. The docent was knowledgeable and friendly. This antebellum home is on the National Register of Historic Places and is beautiful

We were visiting Mobile for the first time from 300 miles away. The Bragg-Mitchell Mansion was one of our top attractions to see. We were there on a Monday and Tuesday. We noticed on their website that the mansion was closed on Monday so we made it our first stop on Tuesday. It was a beautiful sunny day when we... More

The "Mitchell Home", as we called it growing up, is the perfect mix of historical with modern efficiencies to host an event. It is truly a beautiful place.
