Under the majestic oaks and the ivy covered grounds sits one of Mobile’s prized treasures, Oakleigh Period House Museum and Historic Complex. Built around 1833 is Oakleigh Period House, a Greek Revival-style home.
The three and half beautifully landscaped acres consist of Oakleigh, the city’ s official antebellum period house museum; the Cox-Deasy House; and the Mardi Gras Cottage Museum.
Oakleigh is adorned with period furnishings, paintings, silver, and decorative arts. The Cox-Deasy House Museum, is a prime example of a raised Creole cottage, typical of modest middle-class city dwellers along the Gulf Coast. New to the Oakleigh complex is the Mardi Gras Cottage Museum, designed to give visitors a taste of Mardi Gras in Mobile the museum features costumes of past kings/queens and other artifacts from the 19th century to the present.
