Visit Historic Spring Hill with a private guide
Ten miles west of downtown lies an upscale neighborhood steeped in history. Originally a Spanish Grant to a wealthy Mobilian. Originally divided into 5 acre lots, wealthy families built mansions on this site which is over 200 feet above sea level. Eight antebellum mansions remain as well as the oldest institute of higher learning in the state and one of the oldest Jesuit schools in the nation . On this campus sits a Gothic Revival chapel worth seeing.
Visit a 1908 Gothic Revival church. Drive by elaborate mansions, eight of which are antebellum.

You get more than you pay for when you retain Craig as your Mobile tour guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and offers excellent insights to Mobile (and Southern) history, life, customs and society. Additionally, he is an architect that has designed many Mobile houses and has a deep interest in landscape. He is one of the best tour guides we have ever had and we have had many literally throughout the world.
