Historic Districts

Historic Districts

Eight National Register Historic Districts make up what is known as downtown and midtown Mobile, which means that you'll delight in getting to know these eight distinct personalities spread throughout the Mobile Bay area - they truly define the heart and soul of ‘old Mobile'. 

Strolling or driving through one of our seven National Register Historic Districts, you'll discover front porches as stylish as the living rooms within, giant ferns swaying in the breezes and ancient live oak trees and magnolia trees forming canopies over many streets.  Mobilians are active (they have to be, with all the delicious food around) so you'll likely encounter runners, folks walking their dogs or families riding their bikes.  Everyone comes ready with a smile and a wave and soon, you'll feel like you fit right in.

You may happen upon one of many street parties held throughout the year, with white linen tablecloths,  lanterns swinging from  branches, live music or even locally owned food trucks.  Picnics and lawn parties pop up during 5k races and marathons with routes that wind through the historic neighborhoods or you may encounter themed bike-rides (Tweed, zombies and home-brewed beer, to name a few), community gardens and library nooks (where neighbors can drop off or borrow shared books for free).

Each district has a unique character that relflects the city's growth during the 19th and 20th centuries. The Mobile Historic Development Commission is a great place to begin planning your journey through Mobile's colorful architectural history. Be sure to request a driving tour brochure!
