Mobile Historic Development Commission

The Mobile Historic Development Commission (MHDC) is a department of the City of Mobile, under the direction of an independent volunteer Commission. The Commission is composed of representatives of various civic and public entities. The staff is a group of four professionals and a secretary who do serve as staff for the City’s Architectural Review Board.

During the 1960s and 1970s the City of Mobile lost many of its historic buildings. Since its founding in 1962, the MHDC has placed 7 districts in Mobile on the National Register of Historic Places. Each of these is protected by City Ordinances. The Commission has also worked to list a number of buildings individually on the National Register.
