Mobile's most enduring historical society, HMPS was formed in 1935 and eighty-two years later its members are still proud advocates for preservation of beautiful, historic Mobile. On March 14, 1935, at the call of Mrs. Mary F. Sledge, a group of Mobile’s cultural leaders met to discuss forming a society “for the purpose of the protection and preservation of Mobile’s beautiful old buildings and other things of historic value”.

                        -Mrs. Mary F. Sledge

At the Society's third meeting, on May 21, 1935, it was decided that Historic Mobile Preservation Society would be the name of the new organization.
