All Ages Walking Tour 1.5 Hours Historically Accurate

The Port City’s Oldest Graveyard

This tour tells the stories of our early American citizens, including native French, English, Spanish, and Native Americans who grew Mobile from a Colonial outpost to a thriving port city. Our tour begins at Oyster City Brewing, where guests can purchase one of many local and regional brews on tap. After an informative 2-block walk to the Church Street Graveyard, we will take a guided tour of the unusual monuments, historic people, and unusual characters buried there. Our guide will share stories about the gold prospector whose body was sent home in a barrel of rum, Yellow Fever victims, a mass grave, and a haunted tree! We’ll also see the Mardi Gras section where Old Joe Cain, the patron saint of Mobile Mardi Gras is buried.

    My husband Dean and I went on our second Secret History tour tonight and loved it just as much as our first one! Todd does a fantastic job at bringing our city’s history to life with fascinating stories of some of the amazing individuals whose life stories contributed to our city’s rich and dynamic story.

    I am a big fan of city walking tours and Mobile Secret History Tour ranks at the top. The tour is well researched and Todd gives weaves interesting stories throughout each of the stops along the way. Todd is a natural storyteller and a self-confessed bit of a 'ham". I learned several stories about my hometown that I had not known. This is a terrific tour where you will have an enjoyable time and learn something as well. Well worth the ticket price and fun!
