This is a must do on a downtown Huntsville tour. It is filled with crafts made by locals (candles, soaps, art work). They sell candy and other food items such as honey. An awesome little store!

In its original building as part of the courthouse square in downtown Huntsville, the volunteers cheerfully point out the many displays of old hardware items and historic huge cash register "guarded" by the friendliest old dog appopriate for the old wooden floors and high ceilings that take you back in time--but its not just a museum--old time goods are still...

This is a wonderful Old store on the south side of the Square which is as much as a museum as a unique gift store. It has lots of local art and made items plus retro toys and gifts. It is run by volunteers. I always find something useful or interesting that I HAVE to buy in there!

As we stepped from the sidewalk into Harrison Hardware, we stepped into a day long gone by. Beautiful wooden floors, wooden display cases and shelves to the ceiling are the first things that catch the eye. The store is operated as both a museum and a store. A charming volunteer told us about the history of the store and was... More

I'm new to Huntsville but not to history. This place is run by the local historical society and the top half of the store is kept just as it was 50-60 yrs ago when it was still a hardware store. The old ledgers and phone books are there. You can even peer into the old safe. Finish your visit by... More

Yes you can.... Travel back in time, just visit Harrison Brothers Hardware Store. We loved it. There are a lot of left overs from the past. And old National cash register and other things of the old accountant stuff at the back of the shop. You can even buy single marbles in a lot of different colors. The employees are... More

Harrison Brothers Hardware is a very unique shopping experience. I was able to find some great and unusual gifts and souvenirs. The employees were very friendly and helpful and beautifully gift wrapped several items for me. Definitely worth a stop in if you are in the area!
