Although members of Hernando De Soto’s expedition were the first Europeans to discover Alabama, it was not settled by Europeans until 1702 when the French built Old Mobile. That is 160 years after its initial discovery by Europeans. Mobile was later moved to its current site in 1711 because of flooding.
