What a treat to visit an old hardware store from the 1800's Such a nice time looking around at all the old items. My favorite thing was the bins of marbles. It is currently a nice gift shop.

No longer a hardware store but more like a general store. Lots of cute finds from toys to candy. They have an old cash register that is very cool. Check it out if you are in downtown area.

The entrance has much of the original hardware store on display- a full wall and on the ceiling. The old safe, a desk with old papers, the freight elevator. On the other side is an array of pottery, woodworking, jewelry, glass globes, and yard art....More

Harrison Brothers Hardware is a wonderful combination of old and new. The building, which once was the home of a hardware store, along with the old inventory, cash register, ledgers and safe, make up a priceless snapshot of times past. The gift shop is exquisite...More

This is a nice place for a peek into history! The building itself is historic, and they have lots of local and regional goods for sale--very little hardware, more books, soaps, foods, etc. The girls working there were so friendly, too!

I loved this place. It is a gift shop in an old hardware store location that has a wide variety of items from vintage games, local crafts, novelty items. You could spend a good deal of time browsing around.

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....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!...More
