Historic Mobile Preservation Society [AL]

The Historic Mobile Preservation Society was founded in 1935 in order to help preserve the history of Mobile, Alabama. The society's main attraction is the Oakleigh Historic Complex, which consists of a historic house museum, local history museum, and historic archives. The Oakleigh home is fitted with 19th century antique furniture, and is open to visitors year round. The society also owns the Cox-Deasy House, which is also operated as a historic house museum.

The society offers guided tours, research resources, and special events. The website offers a history of the Oakleigh home, resources for fourth grade teachers, and visitor information.
