This is a wonderful old home, often used for weddings and other special events. It is also noted to have it's own ghost. The main room was used as the ball room and has extra long windows that can be removed so that the people can move in and out to stroll the lawns in the moon light. This is... More

This mansion was built in approximately 1855 and originally owned by Judge Bragg. The guided tour was well done and very informative. The house has a circular staircase, is handicapped accessible, and has a very reasonable $10 fee. My wife and I spent about an hour and a half touring and then looking around the grounds. The mansion is well... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of this lovely mansion; our docent was extremely knowledgeable about this home's owners and history which made it even more interesting.

Visited on the end of June 2017. Weekday visitation and the only couple there during afternoon hence it is like a private tour of the property. Very lovely mansion with stories on each corner of the room. Very well maintained and furnished elegantly. A must visit place in Mobile, Alabama.

The ideal visit for a rainy day in Alabama. Warm, friendly reception, a tour based not only on artefacts, but on the story of the house's inhabitants. Set in lovely grounds, this is a must for anyone passing through Mobile with an hour to spare. Even the teenagers enjoyed it.

The tour of this beautiful home is on the hour, and the last tour starts at 3:00. It lasts about an hour, and the fee is $10. It has been restored and is in good shape. Many of the antiques are the originals, and there is a great story about four large mirrors in the ballroom. This home is also... More

This home stood empty during the 70's until it was gifted to the city and refurbished it is a perfect Greek Revival and a little haunted. giggle Beautiful venue for weddings! Just my thoughts....I have heard local stories!

We have been visiting Mobile on many day excursions, over the last 2 1/2 years, since our move to southern Alabama. Have seen many advertisements mentioning this antebellum home, but this was our first looksee at this home that is listed on the "Historic Home National Register". We were met at the front door, 5 minutes before the hour, by... More

Tours on the hour of this gorgeous pre-civil war home. Period pieces, some original, some donated abound and help create an atmosphere that transports you into a different era. Restored meticulously, beautiful original moldings, walls and floors as well as personal items and pictures give you entree into the previous owners lives. Docents are personally invested in the history and... More
