    This is a fun place to stroll and try different restaurants and people watch. There seems to be a lot of activity and you feel like you are visiting all walks of life. We enjoyed it.  more »

    It's right next to the public library. There is only one entrance and it closes at 4pm. It's a beautiful, small, old cemetery. If you are out for a stroll, stop by and take in the history of Mobile.  more »

    Peaceful. historical cemetery entirely walled in by brick with many overhanging magnolia trees. A large number of deaths occured from Yellow Fever, or malaria. Well kept by caretaker and one of the safest places in Mobile's 'Downtown' area, and is directly behind the Mobile Public Library. Closed after dusk.
