The mission of the Mobile History Project is to engage the public in local history by providing accessible, inclusive and compelling educational resources as well as a platform for community dialogue and participation.
Learning all we can about our authentic heritage and culture, embracing both triumphs and failures of the past, connects us to one another, enhances the stability and well-being of the entire community. Understanding not only what happened but why, provides us with a coherent link from the past to the present and a clearer, more unified path to the future.
invites us to "share a place that helps tell a little-known or underrepresented piece of the American story."
The MobileHistoryProject.com was created to serve this purpose. Seeking to explore little-known pieces of the past so that, from this mosaic of diverse cultures and people, emerges a more authentic picture of our community and the unique heritage we all share.
Every piece matters, especially yours.
Explore and contribute.

Also look this fall for the planning of "Mobile History and Heritage Week,"
a week of activities spotlighting Mobile's place in the American story; celebrating the people, places and events that had a lasting impact and providing opportunities to learn from the past by recognizing the subtleties of continuity and change.
A city prospers when citizens share a sense of ownership and responsibility for its future, when their important role in its development is recognized and validated.
