Fort Whiting served as the Alabama National Guard Armory (and still does). It is located on Brookley Field which served as the Army Air Field in World War II and then later as an US Air Force base. Brookley was closed as a military base in the 1960s, but there is still a small Coast Guard base located there. Fort Whiting served as the main wrestling location in Mobile from late 1956 until early 1971. The  building is still in existence and is still used for various functions.
