I had to go to Huntsville today and was a little early so I had a chance to drive around the historic area and get a few photos. I just love all the architecture and history. Huntsville has one of the largest historic districs intact because the northern troops took over the homes instead of demolishing them during the civil war. This is one of the oldest buildings in Alabama. It was where some of the men stayed that came to Huntsville to draft the first constitution for statehood in 1819.
