Daphne, the Jubilee City, is home to people who came to partake of the rich resources of Mobile Bay’s eastern shore. They gathered to collect seafood miraculously washing ashore during the phenomenon of jubilee. They gathered under the spreading oaks to hold councils and along the bayfront to escape the perils of yellow fever across the bay in Mobile. They gathered for clean spring waters and rare pottery clay, to greet the bay boats, and to farm the rich soil. Daphne’s heritage is one of a gathering of peoples, and Daphne documents that heritage.
