Why is Mobile So Haunted?

Modern Mobile was founded in 1706 and quickly became the capital of the French colonies in the New World. From the start, it became a place soaked with death and disease. Yellow Fever ran rampant in the new colony and took hundreds of lives with it. The cemeteries were filled with bodies, but many returned to the surface due to the high water table.

As a port city, Mobile has seen the lives of many sailors come and go. The hauntings of Bienville Square, where a sea captain is often seen smoking his pipe before vanishing into thin air, document this tragic part of Mob City history well. The city changed hands many times, from French, British, Spanish, and American, willingly bringing in a new cast of characters into the grips of Mobile’s wrathful hands.

During the Civil War, Mobile became a strategic access point for Union soldiers looking to decimate Confederate forces. The Battle of Mobile took place on August 5th, 1864. The vicious attack led to 300 Union soldiers and nearly 1500 Confederates captured or dead. The city was set ablaze, but Union victory came at a price. Now, the spirits of this important battle roam Fort Conde and other historical landmarks, searching for redemption in the afterlife.

The Civil War left its mark in many different ways across the Azalea City. Learn about how the last slave ship docked in Mobile and how pieces of the ship are still being discovered today. Along with these planks of wood came the spirits of tortured enslaved peoples and their captors. Discover these truths and many more on our nightly eerie excursion through Mobile.

You Want to Experience Mobile’s Interesting and Unique Culture Like a Local

Mobile is full of national attractions, drawing in thousands of tourists each year. As much as there is to see, you’ll definitely get the most out of your time here by going off-script a little. While its haunted history isn’t as well known as its main attraction, the USS Alabama, a tour with Port City Ghosts will give you a first-hand look at these haunted locations and the chilling tales that gave them their terrifying reputation. You won’t believe some of the stories that this quaint and cozy city harbors in its darkest corners.

You Don’t Believe in Ghosts

We get it. If you’ve never seen a ghost, it’s hard to believe they exist. That may change after a tour with Port City Ghosts. Prepare to have your mind altered after visiting sites such as Bienville Square, that’s inhabited by the spirit of a former Sea Captain. Should you smell the faint air of smoke, no need to worry. It’s just the Sea Captain keeping an eye on his favorite spot in Mobile.

Most Haunted Places in Mobile, AR

The Malaga Inn

Mobile’s infamous Malaga Inn is right up there with the Lizzie Borden House and The Hollywood Roosevelt on America’s list of most haunted hotels. Built during the chaos of the Civil War, the Malaga offers 39 rooms of comfort, class, and creepiness. Every single room at this historic hotel in Mobile has been reported as haunted by the ghosts of Civil War soldiers and widows. Some even crawl into guests' beds to grasp at one last interaction with the living.

Cathedral Square

Situated in the center of Mobile’s bustling downtown, Cathedral Square once housed hundreds of the city’s earliest residents after their expiration date. Known as the Campo Santo, this 1790s cemetery stretched underneath the modern-day Cathedral of Immaculate Conception and was used until the early 1800s. Yellow Fever victims were laid to rest here, many of them at devastatingly young ages. Open your ears, and you may still hear their footsteps wandering through the park at night.

The Battle House Renaissance

Built over the site of a military base used in the War of 1812, the Battle House Renaissance was aptly named. The spirits of Mobillians from different eras still battle their way for supremacy over the living. Henry Butler, the 1929 Mardi Gras King, was murdered within the walls of the 1852 hotel, and a heartbroken bride hung herself some years prior from the chandelier of the ballroom where she was married. They are among the many that haunt Azalea City’s most elegant hotel rooms.
