Early Alabama Statehood

In 1819, forty-four delegates from across the Alabama Territory met in the cabinet shop on the corner of Franklin St. and Gates Ave. to create the first Alabama state constitution.

Civil War at the Depot

The Historic Huntsville Depot is one of Huntsville’s oldest standing buildings. Built in 1860, it was a primary target for the Union Army during the Civil War. In 1862, the Depot was captured by General Mitchell of the Union Army and for a short period of time was used as a prison for the captured Confederate soldiers.
