Alabama Constitution Village

109 Gates Avenue
Huntsville, AL 35801

Step inside the picket fence and be transported back to 1819 …Hear the whir of the spinning wheel… smell the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread being prepared over an open fire… turn the great wheel lathe in the cabinetmaker’s shop… and visit with villagers busy with their daily tasks, seemingly unaware that nearly two centuries have come and gone.

Forty-four delegates of the constitutional convention gathered here in a vacant cabinet shop on July 5, 1819, to organize Alabama as the 22nd state. John Boardman’s print shop, Clement Comer Clay’s law office, the Federal Land Surveyor’s office, a post office and sheriff Stephen Neal’s residence surround that cabinet shop.

Today, the shade trees watch over a proud living village that captures Alabama’s history and spirit. Constitution Village is a unique and unforgettable journey into Alabama’s past.
