The city of Mobile was founded in 1702 and, the Mobile Bay area was explored by the Spanish as early as 1519. Mobile is a city older than New Orleans and has many historic districts which rival those found in Charleston or Savannah. The city of Mobile was settled by the French and, eventually, under rule by the Confederate, English and Spanish through its history. The downtown architecture and the names of streets reflect the past influences from each country who ruled this Mobile Bay Area.
