Footsteps to Statehood: A Walking Tour Through History

HHF’s Footsteps to Statehood walking tour and brochure is based around a resource unique to Huntsville and Madison County: Sixteen historic homes and buildings built between 1809 to 1819, nine of which are within three blocks of the courthouse square. These structures are the oldest, most accessible and best preserved in the state. 

 Through these houses, Footsteps to Statehood offers residents, school children and visitors an engaging opportunity to learn about Huntsville’s political, social and cultural history and how these dynamics shaped Alabama statehood and our first constitution.

Footsteps to Statehood is funded through a grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Huntsville.
