Join Mobile Architectural Historian Cart Blackwell when he tells the winding history of one of the oldest houses in the state: the Conde-Charlotte Museum. Built in 1822 to be the first jail in the city of Mobile, the property became the beautiful Kirkbride home almost three decades later. In the early 20th century, it served as a boarding house, and eventually was purchased by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Alabama, which turned it into the historic house museum that it is today.
