Old State Bank

Alabama’s northern communities feature a variety of cultural attractions just begging for a stopover during your Alabama adventure.

For starters, venture into to Decatur, nestled alongside the Tennessee River, where several must-see sights await.

Set in downtown Decatur, the Blue & Gray Museum features more than an afternoon’s worth of Civil War history. Check out the authentic equipment, guns, uniforms, and other items.

Only a short walk from there, the Old State Bank represents nearly 200 years of Alabama history. The site was named to US National Register of Historic Places in 1972, forever preserving the dazzling architecture and stories of the Battle of Decatur.

One of Alabama’s most beloved landmarks, the Princess Theatre in Decatur hosts some of the communities premiere performing arts shows and concerts, and is a proud member of the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage.

Considered by some to be “Earth’s largest space museum,” the U.S. Space and Rocket Center offers tons of exhibits and artifacts detailing the U.S. Space Program and its relation to Alabama.

Just south of Interstate 565 from Huntsville, the cozy community of Madison preserves its culture and history within the Madison Historic District, a US Historic District featuring some of the city’s top museums, restaurants, historic homes, and more.

Be sure to stop in the Clay House Museum during a Downtown Madison Walking Tour; it’s definitely the district’s top attraction.

Set on the campus of Athens State University in the town of Athens, the Altar of the New Testament and Founders Hall is one of the city’s most beloved cultural landmarks. Stop in for a campus tour and check out the wood-carved shrine, as well as the host of historic buildings nearby.
