Mobile residents raise concerns about two historic homes set to be moved

After residents of Mobile’s historic districts took to social media to complain about two historic homes being moved in the Old Dauphin Way Historic District, city officials said the move has been halted – at least for now.

The proper permits for moving the houses need to be obtained first, officials said.

The houses, 918 and 920 Conti Street, are owned by a non-profit called “Historic Restoration Society, Inc,” property records show. A Facebook post indicates that the two homes are slated to be moved to Frisco City, about 80 miles north of Mobile. Officials with the nonprofit could not be reached to confirm.

“I’m so very sad to hear that these historic Mobile homes are being moved to another city in Alabama 80 miles north,” said Suzanne Sarver, who made the Facebook post about the move. “Really feels like Mobile is loosing [sic] some of its history.”

City of Mobile spokesperson Jason Johnson says that, on Monday, the city was made aware of the activity going on at the two properties, and after an inspection, determined that the owner of the property had not secured the proper permits for the activity. The city then issued a stop work order.
