Been here more than once while enjoying a walk around the courthouse square and downtown. Trip Advisor needs a "Downtown Huntsville" category to group these attractions because Big Spring Park, Constitution Village, Harrison Brothers Hardware, and the Weeden House are all near the courthouse square. The Twickenham district is not that far of a walk. Harrison Brothers Hardware is a... More

A local favorite! Harrison Brothers is both a museum and "general store" type of shop on The Square in downtown Huntsville. The business is operated by the Historic Society on a volunteer basis. Lots of great memorabilia from the earliest days of Huntsville / Twickenham! A special place indeed.

Enjoyed the walk in this old building, they had stuff there that we grew up with. Glass show cases, ledgers, old cash register. Had things to buy. My husband bought me a set of bear claws, use to pick up hot meat or shred meat. Lady was really nice.

We visited this store a few years ago and wanted to go back. It is a combination museum and store store selling unique kitchen items, toys, pottery and gifts. The clerks were helpful and friendly. A fun place to wander around.

We enjoyed spending more than an hour exploring this nostalgic building stocked with a wide variety of interesting items. From soaps to wall decorations. From picture frames to old-fashioned candy. From garden gloves to story books. It's worth a trip to Huntsville if you only visit Harrison Brothers Hardware.

I had this place on my bucket list so I had to stop and check it out. My daughter was blown away with all the old stuff. This store has some interesting items in it. We only had a chance to spend 45 minutes due to the store closing. The two ladies were very friendly and helpful to me and... More

I LOVED this store with a mixture of all kind of things and great to browse and explore. The staff was very helpful and nice. I do recommended that you leave the kids at home and browse with the girls.

What a very unique historic building with lots of older hardware items on display plus the gift shop area for things you can buy and take home with you too certainly worth some time to spend and walk around and see all the different exhibits. A nice hours worth of excitement

This is an interesting place to spend a rainy afternoon in downtown Huntsville, The store is both a museum, displaying items that you would see at an old time hardware store and a gift store with unique items made by local Alabama artists. It is truly like taking a step back in time. The old cash register and the wooden... More
