Mobile Travel Guide

Mobile Local History

The city of Mobile was founded by a French community back in 1702. Since then it has had Spanish, English, Sovereign Alabama, Confederate, and American flags flown over the city. This is clearly seen in the city's architecture, which is a mix of Spanish and French historical forts, and Victorian homes that can be seen lining nearly all the city streets.

This town is used as a huge paper manufacturing center, which explains its very busy port. In early spring Mardi Gras, now better known as Fat Tuesday, is held in the city streets. It is in fact the original USA city to do so, as New Orleans only caught on several years later.
