Six Districts mark Midtown Mobile's Historic Homes; let's explore them all


Mobile has six unique districts that show off the many different types of architecture. Beginning in the downtown area we will travel through each district as it was created. Mobile is home to true antebellum homes that have survived for over 250 years. Grand oaks are our passion and will be found on every street corner.

We will drive through each district, however if you would like to walk any neighborhood we will.

This tour can be customized to your liking.

Itinerary

Starting in old Mobile with a visit to Joe Cain ( he is credited with starting up Mardi Gras post Civil War)
The Oakleigh District is home to Washington Square. Lovely 150 year old oaks dot the park. Houses here were built in the late 1700's.

Springhill hosts the mansions, finishing up in Ashland place.
