Burritt on the Mountain Photos

By

Huntsville received its first museum in 1955 when Dr. William Henry Burritt died and left his mountaintop estate to the city. His fourteen-room mansion built in the shape of an "X", personal collection of artifacts, and 167 acres of land on Round Top Mountain (next to Monte Sano) were the foundation of the Burritt Museum and Historic Park.

Today the museum has been renamed "Burritt on the Mountain" and features the Burritt Mansion, restored 19th Century log structures in its living history site, a rural church, a multipurpose building with a classroom, large meeting room, Museum Store and administrative offices, eight miles of nature trails, five acres of picnic areas, and heirloom gardens which supply produce for cooking demonstrations.
