“Historic district”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This historic district is well preserved and has many interesting houses to view. We did it all from the car. Only complaint is that the map you get from the visitor's center is hard to follow.

“Get a map and do your own walking tour.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

My husband ordered a map ahead from the visitor center for a walking tour. We would be only able to do the walking tour when the visitor center was to be closed. We parked our car in a public parking area just off the square and followed the map in the great booklet they sent us. The booklet tells about most of the houses that you will see as you walk around. We walked around for 1 1/2 hours and enjoyed every minute. These houses are amazing and there are so very many of them. The grounds of these homes are an inspiration for my own. You could drive around and see them but you would miss the feeling of really being in the time period that the homes were built.

“Worth the Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Take a few moments and drive through this beautiful historic district. The people of Huntsville are to be commended for the efforts they have put into preserving these homes. Only wish we could have seen the interiors of some of them. This was a very pleasant experience with the top down after breakfast.

“Beautiful and Historic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

This is an historic neighborhood filled with homes with colorful pasts. Many examples of architecture. We never fail to bring guests to the area for a most enjoyable stroll. Periodic house tours are not to be missed.
