We had a local historian who accompanied us and he made the area come alive. All of Huntsville is very historic and anyone who visits needs to take the time to learn how important the town is.

Absolutely stunning homes, especially the old antebellum houses. Loved seeing the architecture and the landscaping. The magnolia trees were in full bloom. Wish I would have had more time.

I used my GPS and enjoyed a nice driving tour of the dead end streets and many varieties of mansions and upper middle class homes. Great place to raise a family and very safe!
