At roughly 1:15 a.m. on the morning of January 23, 1909, a group of two dozen armed, masked men strolled into what was then called the New Jail at 104 Church Street and held a gun on a deputy to obtain the keys to the cells. A prisoner was taken by force out onto the street and dragged west.
That designated district, located south of Government Street, is named for the historic public school located on Church Street.
With plenty of space for entertaining and for privacy, this distinctive home design was popular with Mobile’s oldest families.
