We to Sa from 10:00 AM to 04:00 PMLocated just minutes from downtown Mobile, the Oakleigh House is a complex of three historic antebellum homes built in the 1850s. Preserved and maintained by the Historic Mobile Preservation Society, the property now serves as a city landmark and offers a unique insight into life during the antebellum era in the South. Each of the three homes represent a different aspect of life during that era, the Greek revival mansion serves as the museum and showcases the opulent lifestyle of society families. The Cook's House, built as slave quarters, accurately depicts the home's poor living conditions and the Cox-Deasy home depicts the life of a poor brick mason and his large family. Tours offered at the complex begin on the hour and feature guides dressed in historically accurate clothing.
