— 1711 —

This site marks the southwestern limit of the city of Mobile in 1711. Known then as Port Louis de la Mobile, it had been founded by the French at 27-Mile Bluff in 1702 and moved to its present site in 1711.

Mobile has been a city under six flags. The French flag was followed by the English, Spanish, American, Republic of Alabama, Confederate, and again American. This is an unusual record.
