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.

If you love to poke around and look at old stuff with a bit of history infused, or enjoy the nostalgia of things from your past, then spend an hour or so looking through this place. There are, of course, new things being sold, but the place is a historical and interesting way to spend a day. It's run by... More

You have to go and check out this place. It's fantastic with lost of memories from the past and the lady in the store is only too happy to give you a history lesson and let you take photos. Some of the items on sale may be a little bit expensive but if you want to take home a special... More
