Haunted Houses in Mobile, AL

You can't travel to our stomping grounds without seeing lines of antebellum houses strewn along the road. While we have already written an article about the different historic house museums in Mobile, we haven't shared which ones are rumored to be haunted and why.

Oakleigh House
Price: $10 for adults, $5 for kids
Hours: 10AM-4PM
Address: 300 Oakleigh Pl.

Oakleigh is one of the oldest homes in Mobile. This, plus its ornate decor and historic style, seem like the perfect recipe for paranormal activity. You can tour this house for a cheap price and see for yourself, and you can see if you have any creepy vibes inside.

The Irwin family lived in this home throughout their life, and four of their family members died inside the house. The Oakleigh manager Marye Newman says she has seen some odd sights here. Some years there have been ghost hunts on the property, but nothing's been confirmed for 2021 or 2022.

Bragg-Mitchell House 
Price: Adults: $10, Children: $5
Hours: 10AM-3PM
Address: 1906 Springhill Ave.

Yet another gorgeous antebellum mansion. While the outside might be impressive and awe-inspiring, underneath this positive veil lies something possibly more sad. Some tourists describe that the house feels depressing at times, as though someone is crying for help. Whether or not this is true is for you to decide!

The spooky specters that people report seeing are a lady in an elegant dress and a phantom cat. Could be interesting...or life-changing.
