First came Twickenham and Old Town in the 1970s. Then Five Points in the 1980s and beyond. Of the historic properties in town, the former mill village neighborhoods in northeast and southwest Huntsville were the only ones that had not received large restorations.
But there are strong signs that historic preservation has arrived in many of the neighborhoods once home to residents of the city’s textile mills, Huntsville’s dominant industry in the early 20th century.
An example is the house at 4016 Triana Blvd., near the heart of the former Merrimack Mill village in southwest Huntsville. Here, Nelson Chatelain of Stanford Home Improvement & Remodeling is renovating a 1,000-square-foot house that, by his estimate, is about 80 years old.
