This is Huntsville's premier historical neighborhood between the hospital district and downtown Square. From late spring thru summer there is a Farmers Market with entertainment, art, dinner, etc. every Thursday night on Greene St. by the Church. Also, in December there is one special Saturday night that all streets in Twickenham are lit with Luminarias and there is a Christmas... More

Twickenham is a historic district of Birmngham with an outstanding collection of historiic houses. The ages of many of the houses are marked with outside signs, construction dates ranging from the early 1800's to the 1920's. A really great place for a drive or walk to see some truly beautiful architecture.

Picked up a brochure at the Visitor Center and parked downtown. I managed to see most houses on the tour, and walk a little over 5 miles. It's very interesting to read the history involved in several of the homes. Twickenham is a very beautiful area to take a stroll through, very clean, felt safe walking alone and made for... More

What a surprisingly beautiful part of Huntsville. We simply drove up and down at random and saw gorgeous historical homes, some decorated for the holidays. Worth the drive.

After eating the hotel breakfast in Huntsville, we set out to discover the Twickenham Neighborhood. I had read that the Twickenham Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its name is derived from an early name for the town of Huntsville, named after Twickenham, England. It has quite a collection of grand old houses, ca. 1818 through... More

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.

The houses in Twickenham are amazing beautiful. The history behind this part of Huntsville dates back to the civil war era. I did a historical walk around the block and was so thankful I took the time to learn about Huntsville in this manner. So worth the effort to see.

Having family visit us in Huntsville we wanted to entertain by taking the $15 Trolley Tour through Twickenham. Very informative, I didn't know Huntsville was once named Twickenham. The houses are charming and the city is fortunate they survived the Civil War. For those tempted to take the tour, it's first come first serve over at Alabama Constitution Village every... More

We live in this neighborhood and we've taken the tour with our friends visiting from out-of-town. Whether on a bus or walking through on your own it's just lovely. The antebellum homes are stunning. Lots of fun little shops in the downtown area, which are in easy walking distance. We are so lucky to live here and welcome everyone who... More

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.
