Spanish Fort Real Estate Homes for Sale
Overlooking the eastern shore of Mobile Bay, Spanish Fort still retains its small town ambiance despite the exceptional growth it has experienced over the years. Originally, the town was a trading post for the French in the 1700’s and later became a military fort for the British in the 1800’s. Even though the fort no longer stands, the city is still full of vibrant parks and scenery. It commands a sweeping view of the Mobile-Tensaw Delta, earning the city the title of “Gateway to the Delta.”
The area has also been recognized for its gorgeous landscapes and spectacular view of the bay. As a result, many Hollywood filmmakers have repeatedly used the city as a backdrop in their movies such as, Saving Private Ryan, The Blue Lagoon, and the Matrix Reloaded.
Spanish Fort is also apart of the Daphne–Fairhope–Foley micropolitan area, giving it access to some of the best schools in the area. Your children will be exposed to some of the area’s most advanced education and will have the opportunity to also attend top universities in nearby Mobile.
