If you've always wanted to live in a historically rich and cozy city, then Mobile, Alabama is the place for you. Its history is amazing- first a French colony, then a British, then a Spanish, then part of state, then part of a Confederate state, and finally the city we know and love today. With a population about 196000 inhabitants, Mobile is the third most populous city in Alabama. The city has always been very active, with the Port of Mobile playing a key role in the city's economy beginning with Mobile's days as a trade center between the French and Native Americans. It is now the 12th-largest port in the country. Another thing that the French left here: the Carnival. Mobile is known for having the oldest organized Carnival and Mardi Gras celebrations in the United States. Even though Louisiana claims these events, Mobile is the real primogenitor. So get ready to party! Culturally, Mobile is filled with several art museums, specializing in subjects ranging from European to American to African and Asian art, an orchestra, an opera, a professional ballet company, and numerous buildings of historic architecture. One unique museum is the battleship USS Alabama repurposed to show naval history. Such a rich historical area deserves great homes that stay true to the heritage while remaining new and exciting. And Mobile offers just that. The homes are all stunning in their own right, from spartan modern designs to aristocratic type interiors. Discover layouts from one to six beds with as many baths, and a price range from 50000 to 1.4 million. That's right: houses start as low as 50000! Mobile is an amazing place to live, for both its heritage and the life you'll live today, but the only way you'll get there is through New Home Source.
