There's an app that can guide you through the neighborhood giving you the history on certain homes and landmarks very close to downtown. Since it was so hot we chose to drive but it seems the app works better if you choose to walk it. I realize this is a review for the neighborhood itself, but we found the app... More

We downloaded an app to our phones from the Huntsville Convention Bureau and borrowed some bikes from the hotel and took off to see the town. The audio tour gave us directions to the sites and then gave us a brief run down of the house or building. It was a lovely area and the tour added to our enjoyment.... More

We had a step-on guide and did a tour of the Twickenham Historical District. I have been to Huntsville many times, but never seen all that is in this area of Huntsville. I loved it and the group really liked the homes.

Worth driving through this area. Some of the prettiest neighborhoods I have seen. We went through with a guide, Jackie Reeves of Avalon Tours. Her knowledge of the area made it even more enjoyable.

Every December there is a home tour with houses on display. You can tour the inside and outside to learn about the history. This is the historical district. The architecture is amazing. The tickets are reasonable.

My husband and I drove through this lovely neighborhood on our visit to Huntsville, The Visitor's Center has a brochure that you can pick up prior to driving through the area which gives the details of the past owners of these lovely antebellum homes. If you love history/architecture, you must visit this beautiful neighborhood in Huntsville.

The last time my wife and I visited Twickenham was near Christmas. The streets were lined with candles inside paper bags and it presented a beautiful display of the neighborhood, juxtaposed with all the Christmas lights and decorations at the individual homes. Earlier that week, several of the older antebellum homes were open to the public for tours. All the... More

We attended the Twickenham Christmas Luminary and Home Tour recently. The area is impressive with the large, grand, old homes that have amazing architectural details. The area was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We enjoyed walking the streets and looking at the homes and the lights. We started at First United Methodist Church which had a very nice open house, complete... More

We drove through the neighborhood during our recent thanksgiving trip as my husband is an avid historical architecture buff. I recommend getting the brochure at the local Tourist Center before you drive through.
