Huntsville

Huntsville

is a city located primarily in Madison County in the central part of the far northern region of the U.S. state of Alabama. Huntsville is the county seat of Madison County. The city is nicknamed “The Rocket City” for its close association with U.S. space missions.

It grew across nearby hills north of the Tennessee River, adding textile mills, then munitions factories, NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command nearby at the Redstone Arsenal. The National Trust for Historic Preservation named Huntsville to its “America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations for 2010” list.
