Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Burritt on the Mountain is an open-air museum in Huntsville, Alabama. The museum grounds on Round Top Mountain, a plateau connected to Monte Sano Mountain, were the estate of local physician William Burritt, who willed his house and land to the city for use as a museum upon his death in 1955. A number of 19th-century rural structures have been added to Burritt's mansion, both in the interest of historical preservation and life re-enactment.

  • Really enjoyed this museum. Took the family and spent a few hours doing the self guided tour. A lot history and really liked the houses from 1800s. Did a small hike down the mountain trail to the road and saw tow deer. I would recommend a visit.
  • Amazing venue! I enjoyed an evening concert with great foods and drinks available. But that view! Makes the entire experience just that much better. In fact, the view alone would be worth the stop, the music just made the experience that much better.
