Mobile: Washington Square
Mobile’s historic urban squares may not be as well known as Savannah’s, but they are equally beautiful with their majestic live oaks, graceful fountains and surrounding antebellum architecture. At the heart of Oakleigh Garden Historic District in Mobile is Washington Square, among the city’s most beloved parks and one that serves as a social and cultural hub. On the National Register of Historic Places, Oakleigh Garden Historic District is centered on Washington Square and contains 288 contributing buildings that range in age from the 1820s to the 1940s.
