A Brief History of Huntsville
- The city of Huntsville is the fourth-largest city in the state of Alabama in terms of population. Originally to be named Twickenham, the region’s anti-British mentality at the time forced its founder, LeRoy Pope, to rename the town Huntsville, after some guy named John Hunt. Huntsville was a planned city, with streets and buildings pre-built for when settlers began to arrive. Using this method the area quickly grew into a transportation powerhouse in northern Alabama, and that tradition continues today. The city is locateed a few hours north of Birmingham, the largest city in Alabama, and actually has very close ties to NASA and U.S. space exploration. The city is home to the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center, which has played an important role in U.S. space exploration since its opening in 1960. You can read more about the city by visiting Huntsville’s official website as well.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Huntsville
- As Huntsville sits just an hour or two north of Birmingham along a spur of I-65, it is a relatively popular transport location for auto transporters if not so much customers. I-65 is a popular north-south interstate that services many of the major metro areas just west of the Appalachian Mountains. It runs from Mobile up into Montgomery, then into Birmingham and finally past Huntsville before making its way into Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and finally terminated in Chicago. It sits just twenty miles east of the interstate proper, and many shippers will use I-565 to move freight into and out of the metro area. You could theoretically see slightly higher prices because of its location just off the interstate, but chances are most auto transporters running routes up and down I-65 would be more than happy to take a quick jaunt east into the larger city. It also helps that I-65 connects to several major east-west interstates along the way, including I-10 in the south, I-20 a bit further north, I-40, I-70 and I-90 – all of which are popular with major interstate auto shipping companies.
