This former 1800s and early 1900s hardware store is now operated by the Huntsville historical society. As you step through the front door, you are transported back in time. Original items are on the shelves from 100 years ago, and you walk on the original...More

I stopped by to stroll through this store. It was like stepping back in time at certain areas of the store. Love the antiques sitting around. Very nice staff. Unique items with a high price.

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

We shopped in this store for some small things to take back for friends. It's is a perfect mix of museum and store, with old ledgers, measurements, bolts and tools around, and pretty much anything you may need to purchase. I found DNA duct tape,...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!
