One St. Louis Centre

— 1907-1986 —

Throughout the 19th and first half of the 20th century, large warehouses and commercial buildings lined Water and Commerce Streets to service the port of Mobile. One St. Louis Centre, known locally as the McGowin-Lyons Building, was the largest and tallest warehouse structure to be built along Mobile's waterfront. Constructed in 1907, it is now the last of these buildings to survive to the present. One St. Louis Centre was renovated into a modern office building in 1986.
