Weeden House Museum

The Weeden House Museum, located in Huntsville’s historic Twickenham District, was the home of several distinguished early Huntsvillians. The aim of the museum is to present the fine architectural features of this 1819 Federal style house and to share the life of Maria Howard Weeden, who was a famous poet and watercolorist. Ms. Weeden (1846-1905), known as Howard, gained international acclaim for her portraits of freed slaves accompanied by verses that captured their stories. These works were published in four books between 1898-1904. Accomplished artists have been inspired by her works and visitors to the museum continue to be inspired today.
