The House was built in 1819. In 1845, Dr. William Weeden bought the house and his descendants owned it until 1956. Now it is owned by the City of Huntsville, it is leased by the Twickenham Historic Preservation District Association and maintained as a 19th century house museum.
Previous residents include John McKinley who lived in the house from 1824-1827, prior to serving as an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court; banker-planter Bartley M. Lowe, first president of Huntsville Bank and The Weeden family who lived in the house from 1845-1956, except for during the Federal occupation of Huntsville during the Civil War when the home served as the living quarters of Federal officers.
Located in the heart of downtown Huntsville, in the historic Twickenham district, the Weeden House Museum and Garden provides an elegant atmosphere and ideal setting for meetings, parties, weddings and receptions.
Maximum capacity is 100 people inside the house.
