Mobile is the county seat of Alabama, where the population sits at 195,111 as of the last census in 2010. This population garners the city’s reputation as being the third most populous city in Alabama, the first most populous city in Mobile County, and the largest municipality in the area that makes up the Gulf Coast that sits between New Orleans, Louisiana, and St. Petersburg in Florida. The city has held these rankings for some time now, as the population fluctuates very little. In fact, some statisticians find serendipity in the fact that although the city is called Mobile, very few people suffer from the economical phenomena known as brain drain. This refers to a city’s youth and mental resources leaving to other more prosperous or enticing cities, leaving their hometown with little innovation. Such is not the case with Mobile, Alabama.
The city was incorporated quickly after its founding. What usually takes a few decades took only five years for Mobile to be incorporated into the state. In January 1814, Mobile was officially recognized as a town, and five years later in December 1819 as a city. The square mileage of the town, as of the last counting, was 180 square miles. 139 of it is counted as land, and forty of it is water. The population is right at sea level, with a differentiation of ten feet. With its population, the density only comes out to about 1,364 people per square mile. The citizens of Mobile, Alabama are known as “Mobillians.” It is Alabama’s only saltwater port, named after its location along the Mobile River and sits at the head of Mobile Bay in the Gulf Coast. In its history, the Port of Mobile has played a huge role in the economic health of the city, playing a major role for French colonist and Native trading. Today it is listed as the 12th-largest port in the United States.
