A sneak peek of a few homes to be seen on the Twickenham Walking Tour:

Van Valkenburgh House, ca. 1902
This house is an excellent example of Classical Revival styling by the architect Herbert Cowell. The majestic two-story home has several beautiful stained glass windows.

205 Williams Avenue, Public Inn, ca. 1818
Opened around 1818, as a "public house" for "travelers and a few boarders in the best manner and on the most reasonable terms." How convenient it might have been for the overworked legislator working on the state's Constitution, to retire for food, drink and a room to share. The building was restored in 1926 and has been in its current location since.

603 Adams Street, Moore-Rhett House, ca. 1826
The Moore house was the scene of one of Huntsville's most famous social events, a formal party in 1892 honoring the cow "Lily Flagg," the world champion butter fat producer!
