|What is Burritt on the Mountain?|
Burritt is a unique Huntsville Treasure named for Dr. William Burritt who gave the land and his home to the city in 1955. It sits on top of Monte Sano Mountain, overlooking the city of Huntsville and boasts breathtaking views. We have nature trails, Dr. Burritt’s unique mansion used for exhibits and available to tour, a Historic Park with 6 log cabins, their related outbuildings, and a barnyard complete with animals. The Historic Park allows the interpretation of rural farm life in the area between 1800 and 1900.
We provide a wide range of educational learning experiences for children through field trips, camps, and our partnership with EarthScope, the environmental education program sponsored by the City Schools System.
We also provide artistic and recreational experiences with our world class City Lights and Stars outdoor concerts series, exhibits in the mansion, and other theatrical events during the year.
Families enjoy our big festivals and monthly Historic Park programs and holiday events including Candlelight Christmas, Holiday Magic, and the Easter Pawrade.
We are an important attraction for the city of Huntsville and host tours, weddings, and corporate retreats.
