The Oaks and the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception

Mobile, Alabama's Cathedral Parish was the first parish established on the Gulf Coast; it was originally located at the French settlement of Mobile at the citadel of Fort Louis de la Louisiane. The settlement was later moved to it's current location in 1711. In 1781, during the Spanish occupation of Mobile, the parish took its current name, Immaculate Conception. The cathedral was designed in 1833 by Claude Beroujon, a former seminarian turned architect, and is laid out in a Roman basilica design.
