Huntsville: Twickenham Historic District
Sounds like something out of Dickens. Twickenham Historic District gets points not only for its charming name, but also its impressive collection of antebellum homes. Huntsville’s first designated historic district was named after the town of Twickenham, England by LeRoy Pope, known as the “father of Huntsville.” The district contains homes in the Federal and Greek-Revival architectural styles and is believed to contain the densest concentration of antebellum homes in Alabama. Built in 1819, the district’s Weeden House Museum is open to the public as are other houses in the district.
