  • 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 »

  • Amazing historical cemetery
  • My FAVORITE Mobile graveyard!!
  • 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.
