We drove through this beautiful neighborhood on a Sunday afternoon. Be sure to stop by Visitor Center & pick up a map to navigate streets-very helpful. Lovely, well-kept homes dating back to 1883-1900's!! Makes you wonder what it was like in Colonial days...
The streets are lined with luminaries and the homes are decorated and open this weekend. Such a beautiful sight and such a wonderful experience. The tour included the Weeden House, the Helion Masonic Lidgd and First Methodist church as well as private homes. Each stop had guides and all were Christmas spectacles. Loved the evening.
The self guided tour of Twickenham is fabulous. Maps are available - I wouldn't recommend walking without a map. Each home has a bit of history written on the map and many homes have plaques near the sidewalk to identify its name and history. The homes are all privately owned and one cannot tour inside but the outsides are awesome.
All the Homes in this Historical district are beautiful. Each historical home has a plaque I'm front of it. I wished there was a map to help people drive the area on their own.

So much history. Not just Alabama either. It is a large, very old and beautiful cemetery. The main point for land surveys in Alabama is located in this cemetery.
Met with group for regular Sat evening tour of down town Huntsville ( I think there are 3 different ones ) several stops along way to view and told of history area including ghost ( nothing scary ) . Beautiful homes most pre dating the Civil War . Will return to take the other walks
There's an app that can guide you through the neighborhood giving you the history on certain homes and landmarks very close to downtown. Since it was so hot we chose to drive but it seems the app works better if you choose to walk it. I realize this is a review for the neighborhood itself, but we found the app... 更多
We downloaded an app to our phones from the Huntsville Convention Bureau and borrowed some bikes from the hotel and took off to see the town. The audio tour gave us directions to the sites and then gave us a brief run down of the house or building. It was a lovely area and the tour added to our enjoyment.... 更多
