Burritt On The Mountain
Meeting RoomsAmusement & Attractions / Entertainment / Recreation
In 1955, physician and Huntsville native William Henry Burritt (1869-1955) willed his estate and mansion, known as Round Top Mountain, to the city of Huntsville to create our first museum. The site features Burritt's eclectic mansion, a historic park with restored nineteenth-century houses, a barnyard with authentic breeds of farm animals, a series of nature trails, and concerts, plays, festivals and exhibits. Our mission is to enhance lives and build community through educational, artistic, and recreational experiences while preserving our heritage, land, and historic structures.
