History

Mobile, Alabama is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Fort Conde Inn. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.

The History

Fort Conde Inn was built as a home in 1836 by a wealthy plantation owner for his home. It is said to be the second-oldest house in Mobile. But the original purpose of the land dates back to 1711, where settlers built a fort.

This inn has seen its dark days from the past, not always being as brightly beautiful as it is today. For you see, this area was once the red light district in Mobile. This is where the lonely that arrived in Mobile would find some company. One of the buildings to the left of the main Inn (now known as Cottages) was once a brothel. The other buildings were bars and houses of ill repute. Unfortunately when this little corner of Mobile went downhill, it was abandoned to decay.

Its restoration came to the rescue of this historical building. Thankfully, it was purchased by a team that wanted to bring back its glory days. It was repurposed as a fine Inn with cabins and a venue fit for the finest weddings. The cobblestone streets and gas streetlights give the entire area a feeling of otherworldliness.

The Hauntings

Guests appear to have more experience on the second floor of this historic hotel. Those spend the night here claim to hear disembodied voices, while others experience doors that slam on their own. Another unearthly noise is commonly heard clawing sounds on the floor. Others have actually seen a ghost dog.

Sometimes just feeling the spirit can be overwhelming. On the second floor, visitors sometimes feel an unusual presence that is not explainable. Many often are overcome with a feeling of dread.

The inn also has adjoining cottages, each offering additional suites to the public. And yes, these are also very supernaturally active. A housekeeper once reported that she placed a bucket of water outside the door of a suite in the Antunez Cottage. Her water began to roll down the stairs on its own very slowly. There was no slope or other factor to explain this strange activity.

A worker in the Antunez Cottage also reported that he walked into a room and came upon a Confederate soldier in uniform staring out the window. The soldier turned around slowly to stare at the worker. The worker ran with great fright, never returning to the property ever again.

One employee of the inn has revealed she often sees an old civil war soldier who liked to sit on the front porch of one of the old houses. It's almost like he is watching the Inn. She spoke of the ghost of a prostitute who could be seen through one of the windows.

This cottage seems to carry much spectral energy. Many have reported hearing heavy footsteps walking up the stairs. When the folks ask who goes there, they suddenly fade away. No one can be noted as the source of these unearthly sounds.
