The Spanish Revival Residences in Mobile Multiple Property Submission is a multiple property submission of buildings that were listed together on the National Register of Historic Places as some of the best remaining examples in Mobile, Alabama of houses built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. It covers ten properties.[1][2]

Although best known in California and Florida, the style came early to Mobile and was eagerly embraced. The Latin colonial history of the city, as well as its semi-tropical climate, are thought by architectural scholars to have been a factor in this. The George Fearn House was the first example in 1904, quickly followed by the grand Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Passenger Terminal in 1907. Government Street Methodist Church (1906-1917) was another elaborate example. These grand buildings spurred the building of Spanish Revival houses of varying degrees of sophistication in neighborhoods all around the rapidly growing city during the 1920s. The Mobile Country Club, completed in 1927, and some of its surrounding mansions was built in the style. The middle-class Florence Place subdivision was originally solely composed of Spanish Revival houses.[1][2]
