John Hunt first settled in the location in 1805. The town was named “Huntsville” after its first settler on November 25, 1811. It was Alabama’s first capital city when Alabama was admitted to the Union in 1819. Huntsville has grown considerably across nearby hills and along the banks of the Tennessee River, adding textile mills, then munitions factories, to become a major city, including NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal.
Huntsville’s economy is based largely on aerospace and military technology. Redstone Arsenal, Cummings Research Park, and NASA’s Marshall Flight Center make up the center of Huntsville’s technology driven economy.
