Huntsville Jobs: Overview
Huntsville, Alabama, was a town filed with historic antebellum homes; renovated, turn-of-the-century manufacturing mills; and a preserved vintage hardware store. In the 1950s, it was suddenly propelled into the future, becoming home to the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and sending the first American satellite into orbit. Today, the Marshall Space Flight Center is home to 6,000 Huntsville jobs and is one of NASA's largest field centers. You can tour the Harrison Brothers Hardware store on your journey to visit the U.S. Space & Rocket Center to see the Apollo 16 Command Module and 1,500 rocket and space artifacts collected as a result of Marshall's galactic missions.
Huntsville also launched an art space in one of its former textile mills to give public studio spaces to local artists. The Lowe Mill houses galleries, live performances, and art classes. An innovative combination of rocket science and culture came together when a group of scientists and engineers brewed beer and created beer trails following their Free the Hops campaign. It's no wonder Huntsville has been named one of the best places to live by U.S. News. If you're considering Huntsville as a place to work or live, you might also want to take a look at Madison, Decatur, and Birmingham.
