Oldest continuously operating hardware store in Alabama, established in 1879 and on the Square since 1897. Operated by the Historic Huntsville Foundation, staffed by volunteers.
Better than a museum, Harrison Brothers is a living 19th century landmark sitting serenely in the midst of downtown Huntsville. High-tech Huntsville itself seems 100 years away as you enter the store.
Harrison Brothers is more than a glimpse of old Huntsville. It is a shopper's delight. On the west side of the store, a stack of antique biscuit jars brimming with old-fashioned candies tempts youngsters of all ages. Cotton throws, colorful tins, marbles by the scoop, cast iron cookware, and oak rocking chairs share space with garden gadgets, bird feeders, and whirly-gigs. We stock books, cookbooks, prints, postcards, and other items relating to Huntsville and Madison County's history.
When you are searching for that perfect gift, a souvenir to take home, or just plain looking, Harrison Brothers is the place to visit.
