Enjoyed the walk in this old building, they had stuff there that we grew up with. Glass show cases, ledgers, old cash register. Had things to buy. My husband bought me a set of bear claws, use to pick up hot meat or shred meat. Lady was really nice.

We visited this store a few years ago and wanted to go back. It is a combination museum and store store selling unique kitchen items, toys, pottery and gifts. The clerks were helpful and friendly. A fun place to wander around.

We enjoyed spending more than an hour exploring this nostalgic building stocked with a wide variety of interesting items. From soaps to wall decorations. From picture frames to old-fashioned candy. From garden gloves to story books. It's worth a trip to Huntsville if you only visit Harrison Brothers Hardware.

I LOVED this store with a mixture of all kind of things and great to browse and explore. The staff was very helpful and nice. I do recommended that you leave the kids at home and browse with the girls.

This is an interesting place to spend a rainy afternoon in downtown Huntsville, The store is both a museum, displaying items that you would see at an old time hardware store and a gift store with unique items made by local Alabama artists. It is truly like taking a step back in time. The old cash register and the wooden... More

I had heard about Harrison Brothers for years. We were visiting the Huntsville Art Museum and decided to stop in this historic store. The store is located on South Side Square in Huntsville and is the oldest operating hardware store in Alabama. It was founded in 1879 by brothers James and Daniel Harrison as a tobacco store on Jefferson Street... More
