The primary mission of the Mobile History Project is to engage the public in Mobile's local history and culture. 

and to provide citizens with the tools for applying local history to public policy.


To provide fresh, inclusive and authoritative educational resources in local history, interpreted from original documents and historical images.

To encourage the application of historic people and events to matters of local concern. 


To provide a platform for communication and informed planning. 



A focus on culture, heritage, inclusion and communication creates an engaged, empowered and motivated community,

a place where unity and economic prosperity will be sustained by the next generation.
