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.

My wife and I spent about an hour and a half on the self-guided walking tour. It was a beautiful morning and although the temp was in the 80's a nice breeze kept us comfortable. If you like history and/or beautiful, historic homes, this is a must do. The Huntsville welcome center will give you a CD for a narrated... More

I used my GPS and enjoyed a nice driving tour of the dead end streets and many varieties of mansions and upper middle class homes. Great place to raise a family and very safe!

The houses are very well kept up and my husband really liked looking at the architecture. The houses have little signs in front of them so you can easily identify which houses are on the tour.

There is a "ghost tour" of Twickenham and I wish we could have gone on it so we could have learned more about the history of the homes in this area. They are beautifully restored and each home has a sign in front that says who was the original owner and the year the home was built. Even my teen... More
