Overview
More
Built by Virginian cotton broker, James W. Roper in 1833, Oakleigh is a remarkable example of historic preservation, as it has been adapted and preserved by the four families who lived here. As one of the first major residences to be built outside of the city limits, historians cite Oakleigh as one of the rarest examples of Greek revival architecture in the United States. And our tour is just as distinct- come experience it today.

It's architecturally grand and very nicely kept. The historic decor and furnishings let you glimpse the past as you tour the home. The guide was rushed and was talking too fast, but she did know a lot about the former families who have lived there....More

We had a great time learning the history of the house. Our tour guide, Marye, was very knowledge and engaging. The garden areas need some work & the exterior of the house needs some repair but don't let that keep you from visiting this incredible...More

Visited with friends one weekend and we were very pleased with our tour that included plenty of information from our tour guide, as well as a lengthy tour that allowed us to look around everywhere that we went.

The tour for this house was very interesting and the property was so quiet and peaceful. It is in a quaint residential neighborhood that we would love to live in. The price of the tour was extremely reasonable.

Southern charm at it's best! You will learn a lot about Mobile History. I would say dress comfortably and bring your camera. The OakleighBelles add the perfect touch to this tour!
