Mobile Historic Districts
De Tonti Square
De Tonti Square in downtown Mobile consists of historic buildings in Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate, Queen Anne and Victorian architectural styles. The clay-brick townhouses and houses were built in the 1850s and 60s and the neighborhood features brick sidewalks and original gas lamps.
Oakleigh Garden District
Old Dauphin Way
The Old Dauphin Way District is west of Mobile, part of the Price and Espejo tracts, which were Spanish land grants of the early 1800s. The older structures consist of simple frame cottages, while larger homes line Dauphin Street and Spring Hill Avenue. Many of the streets are named for the original settlers.
Church Street East
Church Street East is the most diverse of Mobile's historic districts. Many of the colonial French, Spanish and English structures were destroyed by fire then rebuilt in the late 19th C.
Lower Dauphin Street Commercial District
Lower Dauphin Street is Mobile's only predominantly 19th C commercial district. The district consists of 39 two- and three-story brick structures built in the Victorian, Federal, Italianate and 20th C Revival styles.
