About the Museum
At Alabama Constitution Hall Park guests are whisked back to 1819 when Alabama became the 22nd state. Step back in time and walk where our ancestors made the dream of statehood a reality. More than 200 years ago, 44 delegates gathered in Huntsville to make Alabama the 22nd state admitted to the Union.
In 1819, the only building large enough to accommodate the delegation was a vacant cabinet shop in the center of town. John Boardman’s print shop, Clement Comer Clay’s law office, the Federal Land Surveyor’s office, a post office, and Sheriff Stephen Neal’s residence surrounded that cabinet shop.
Alabama Constitution Hall Park is also a great gathering space or event venue with wide clean sidewalks, ample lighting, and two retail outlets including a gift shop and a Piper and Leaf – Artisan Tea Company location.
