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...

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.
