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 with a great variety of items from art, jewelry, pottery, books, cards, bath products, toys,... 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, special tea, old fashioned candy, small wooden boxes and lovely ceramics. The store is surprisingly... More

We were traveling from Georgia and decided to make this our first stop. My husband had done some reading up on places to visit in the area as we were traveling to visit the U.S. Space and Rocket center. They were a little late opening up but very friendly and full of information! The lady that greeted us gave us... 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. 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.
