The last time my wife and I visited Twickenham was near Christmas. The streets were lined with candles inside paper bags and it presented a beautiful display of the neighborhood, juxtaposed with all the Christmas lights and decorations at the individual homes. Earlier that week, several of the older antebellum homes were open to the public for tours. All the... More

We attended the Twickenham Christmas Luminary and Home Tour recently. The area is impressive with the large, grand, old homes that have amazing architectural details. The area was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We enjoyed walking the streets and looking at the homes and the lights. We started at First United Methodist Church which had a very nice open house, complete... More

We drove through the neighborhood during our recent thanksgiving trip as my husband is an avid historical architecture buff. I recommend getting the brochure at the local Tourist Center before you drive through.

Driving around and looking at all the old homes in this historic district was a highlight of our recent trip to Huntsville. The historical association has done an incredible job with the signs in front of these homes including the family name that built the house and year of build. Just reading those signs and noting the differing periods of... More

Excellent, beautiful, well-preserved homes on beautiful, tree-lined streets. Some of these home are nearly 200 years old. Historical placards with dates are placed in front of each significant home. Go on a ghost walk through this area for a great history lesson.

The streets of Twickenham look like a movie set; fine old antebellum mansions with a few Victorian and Edwardian homes in the mix. Visit during the day, but go back and drive through again at night. Many of the homes are all lit up and you can even see inside some. Beautiful!

If you love old houses and beautiful architecture this is a must! It was 96 degrees outside so I could't convince any of my party to walk around the streets, so we just drove. Definitely a nice change of pace! I loved how all the houses had a plaque in the yard indicating the year it was built!

Twickenham is a historic neighborhood located in downtown Huntsville near the Courthouse. Streets are lined with beautiful old trees, bungalow houses, flower gardens and mansions. Many of the homes date from 1800's with many registered and marked as National Historic Landmarks. This is a nice area just to stroll through for some quiet time, soak up some history or admire...
