Conde-Charlotte Museum House
Near the banks of the Mobile River, the Condé-Charlotte Museum began its life in 1822 as Mobile’s first courthouse and jail, eventually becoming the beloved home of the Kirkbride family. It now stands as a historic house museum, full of antiques and period furnishings, which reflect Mobile’s history under five flags: French, English, Spanish, Confederate and American. Let our guides lead you through the area’s complex history under its various European sovereigns, its entry into the American territory, and its position as a Confederate city under Union siege during the Civil War. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Condé-Charlotte Museum is owned, preserved and operated by the National Society of Colonial Dames in America in the State of Alabama.
