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!

Harrison Brothers is a combination museum/gift shop and provides a unique shopping experience with something for everyone. It offers a wide array of merchandise and gifts and is staffed by friendly volunteers. A "must" to visit in Huntsville, Alabama.

Harrison Brothers is a great Museum Store. It is housed in the premises of a business over a hundred years old. Love the National Register Cash Register that they still use on every transaction! It is true it is no longer a hardware store, but the old time feel is still there. You can see many of the products that... More

Harrison Brothers Hardware has a wonderful blend of unusual gift items for any buying occasion and is an original and quite old hardware store. The sales team is composed of volunteers, so making purchases makes you feel that you are supporting the community. The store has added arts and craft items from local artisans too, so all in all, it's... More

Last year my husband and I visited The Harrison Brothers Hardware store and were delighted with its character and history. Now the Historical Society has taken over and turned into a gift shop and Craft store. How sad.
