Enjoyed the overall atmosphere of this place. Live animals, lots of decorations, and a great little live band playing Christmas songs. One of my favorite things was the blacksmith live demonstration, where several products were fabricated right in front of our eyes.

Although the park is hard to find and parking is difficult to obtain in downtown Huntsville, this is a jewel of a historical park. The history of this place is well worth knowing. While most of the buildings are reproductions, they are accurately built, furnished...More
