Five Points is one of Huntsville's Historic Preservation Districts, established in 1999.
Initially part of the 1892 East Huntsville Addition, it developed slowly over the course of a century. This neighborhood's significance lies in its illustration of the evolution of middle-class housing in 20th century Huntsville, rather than a concentration of one period.

The dwellings include a collection of modest one and two-story vernacular Victorian homes, a variety of Bungalows that experienced great popularity in the 1920's and 30's, modest Cape Cods, which were then succeeded by the Ranch style, which was so fashionable in the 50's and 60's.

The East Huntsville Addition was the first true suburb in Huntsville, made feasible by the construction of a streetcar line, which allowed working people to live farther than walking distance from jobs and shopping without owning an automobile. The neighborhood still retains its 19th century grid layout of broad, parallel streets, narrow but deep lots, and rear service alleys, which permit pedestrian-oriented streets.

This area was annexed into the City in 1925.
We invite you to explore our neighborhood and our web site.
