Downtown Huntsville / Five Points Real Estate
Downtown Huntsville and the Historic Districts
The heart of Downtown Huntsville is jam-packed with park space, museums, restaurants, boutiques—even two retro gift shops reminiscent of the old-fashioned general stores of yesteryear! Parades, block parties, historic tours, and cultural events are common sights on the weekends, and evenings typically bring people strolling along the district’s many storefronts after a meal. After dark, Downtown Huntsville reveals a lively music scene, with buskers and professional musicians alike performing among a variety of bars and nightclubs.
Surrounding Downtown are the city’s oldest historic districts—Twickenham, Old Town, and Five Points. All three are stunning in their architectural diversity. Spend a day walking through these neighborhoods and you’ll struggle to find two homes that look alike. Each district has its own character and flavor. Massive oaks and pecan trees line the streets of Twickenham, shading the stately facades of Federal, Queen Anne, and Greek Revival homes from the 19th century. Some of its structures even have roots in the 1700s. Old Town features some of the finest examples of early 20th century Art Deco and Craftsman style homes in the South. And Five Points, lined with authentic cottages and California bungalows, buzzes with Huntsville’s eclectic art scene.
