Maysville Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Maysville neighborhood is large and quite diverse. Homes tend to be small and well kept, though in some areas homes are elegant, set along divided, landscaped boulevards. Many of the top entertainment and recreational areas of Mobile are either in or quite near the neighborhood. Maysville is bound by Virginia Street, Michigan Avenue, Duval Street, and Halls Mill Road, in zip code 36605.
A top city site is in the north part of Maysville; along Virgina Street residents have a front row seat so to speak for the most exciting sports events in the city. Ladd-Peebles Stadium is where the city’s high school football games are played. It is also the site of University of South Alabama football games, the GMAC Bowl, and the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Classic. The 40,000-seat stadium frequently hosts concerts, too.
Just east of Michigan Avenue is an historic cemetery, Mobile National Cemetery. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places and dates to 1836. The cemetery has many noteworthy monuments, such as the obelisk in memory of the 1,100 Confederate soldiers buried here.
The neighborhood has several parks. Just north of the cemetery is Crawford Park and Recreation Center. Within the neighborhood boundaries are St. Rickarby and Harmon Parks.
About two miles east are top city attractions, one being the Mobile Civic Center. MCC keeps a busy schedule of events, one of the most famous being the Junior Miss Pageant. In the blocks around the civic center are several historic churches.
Near the civic center is historic Fort Conde, built in 1723 and held by the French until 1763. Just a mile or so from Fort Conde is the USS Alabama Battleship. Commissioned in 1942, it served in both the Atlantic and Pacific. Since its return to Mobile, 13 million visitors have visited the site.
