History

While still a part of the Mississippi Territory, Mobile County was created by a proclamation of Governor Holmes of the Mississippi Territory on December 18, 1812.[1] The area became part of the Alabama Territory, on August 15, 1817,[2][3] on the day the Mississippi Territory formed a state constitution and was split in half. Two years later, the county became part of the State of Alabama, when granted statehood on December 14, 1819.
