As Alabama’s oldest and largest city on the Gulf Coast situated between the states of Louisiana and Florida, Mobile has a population of 195,000 residents. Mobile was the first colonial capital of France when it was established in 1702. After being a colony of Britain and Spain, it became an official part of the United States in 1813.
The Port of Mobile plays a major role in the city’s economy, being the twelfth largest port in the nation. The land also served well for growing cotton. Its increasing population included educated professionals desiring to do trade on the river.
In the 20th century, shipbuilding and steel production became the most important industries. Today these industries are joined by aerospace, construction, medicine, and manufacturing as major industries.
Mobile held the first Mardi Gras celebrations in the U.S. from the early part of the 18th century and continues to have a lively festival season. Mobile is home to a host of museums and cultural facilities, including the Mobile Museum of Art, Battleship Memorial Park, Mobile botanical gardens, the renowned Saenger Theatre, and historic architectural structures and cemeteries. Mobile is also home to the University of South Alabama and the University of Mobile.
