Too bad a map or website doesn't exist to get more info about each house as you drive or walk around. Don't be surprised if drivers get annoyed with you lol :) The courtyards of the homes are so quaint.

This is a lovely walking neighborhood in downtown Huntsville. The historic homes have markers and some have a little history write up, too. It's nice for walking or just driving through!

We drove through this beautiful neighborhood on a Sunday afternoon. Be sure to stop by Visitor Center & pick up a map to navigate streets-very helpful. Lovely, well-kept homes dating back to 1883-1900's!! Makes you wonder what it was like in Colonial days...
