The Semmes Honor Park was constructed in remembrance of those who have served our great country. The park is very well maintained by the city with several shaded benches, nice sidewalks and grassy lawn. There are many bricks along the walkways placed in memory of those who have served. It's a great place for a nice walk, a picnic or just to sit and read.

This park has the Original 1902 One Room Semmes Schoolhouse which is Alabama's Oldest Continuous-IN-Us School. There is also a replica of the Malone Chapel which houses a museum and can be rented for meetings or receptions. This is a very nice look back into the history of Semmes, AL.

The Mobile Museum of Art includes a permanent collection of approximately 10,000 works of fine and decorative arts from America, Asia, and Europe, spanning periods from classical antiquity to the present day. The Museum is supported by a unique public/private partnership of city and community support; its facility is owned by the city of Mobile, and the art collection is privately owned.Founded in 1964, MMofA has grown from a modest initiative of The Board of Commissioners of the City of Mobile and two private arts entities, the Allied Arts Council, and the Mobile Arts Association, to the only accredited art museum in southern Alabama.
I visted the Mobile Museum of Art and was pleasantly surprised. It is a very pretty museum with 3 floors and a great outdoor view of the Mobile Bay. There was a Christenberry photography exhibit and local photography exhibit. I always appreciate when an area exhibits local artists and it was a well planned out exhibit. There was also a very informative video with the artist speaking eloquently about his home state and the people who inspire him. I also walked along the bay and took pictures of an interesting multi colored horse statue on the grounds. There are geese with their babies along the water and it is a peaceful place to be inspired. I would recommend it.

Visited here as evacuees from Irma. Met the ED at the gate and she welcomed us with open arms, waived admission (although we donated the amount), gave us ice water and invited us to "just relax and foget about Irma for awhile". Just what we needed after the trip up from Ft Lauderdale.

We recently attended a child's birthday held in near the park's large playground area, which is pretty close to heaven for any kid under 10.
The park is big and beautiful with a large open area, and several picturesque walking trails along the amply wooded west drive-in entrance. Very pretty park!

Not very often, do you come across a small, free museum with quality exhibits like this!
I was an archaeologist a million yrs ago, B.C (before children) so I find this type of museum very interesting. I'm visiting from IL so I liked seeing the similarities between the woodland and Mississippian artifacts in AL to those of the sites found in IL and MO. The exhibits were well-researched, well-designed and very educational. The displays give a great introduction to the bay area prehistory.

This park is a few miles from 65 before u get to USA on moffett road. It is between the tennis center and mobile art museum and next to botanical gardens and golfs lieu course. It has a big lake n the middle and walking track around it that is several miles long and frisbee golf track and outdoor theatre and. Bunch of picnic tables swings etc. like every park in mobile it is poorly maintained and long on potential short on actual use. ( We can't have nice things here in Mobile. )
Anyway it is popular Pokemon go spot too. A little sketchy at night but ok during the day

Confederate General Richard Taylor surrendered here.
I volunteer at Magee Farms in Kushla,AL. We have something other Civil War homes don't have, we have all of the original furniture, the house has never been rebuilt, and we have the original receipts on the furniture. Every other Civil war home has been rebuilt or refurnished.
This house is where General Canby and General Taylor surrendered. An actual battle took place here.
You will love this house! When you walk in, you can just feel like you're in the 1800's. It's like going into a time machine. When you walk out you expect to be driven away in a horse and buggy instead of a car. All of the tour guides wear period correct clothing, so it seems like they actually live there.
This is something you will definitely want to see while you're here.

Open Saturday and Sunday, 9am - 5pm. This is an open- air market, but you are protected from the rain. This market has booth after booth of many different items to buy. Fresh produce, farm animals, pets, scents, clothing, furniture, music, plants, coin collections, phone accessories, purses, personalized items including stickers for your auto, etc... Some booths have boxes and boxes of items that you can really use. My favorite items to buy are the hand-held fans for $1. Believe me, everyone needs a fan in the South! There are food booths that serve ice cream, drinks, burgers, hot dogs, and cotton candy. My favorite booth sells corn on the cob and you can add your own flavors! I recommend you go early! This market is very popular!
