Huntsville, Alabama is all about things that go “Boom”.  What does that mean?  It means that many of the things made here will make that particular sound.   Although Huntsville itself is a relatively quiet place, it is home to the Redstone Arsenal (where many of the missiles and rockets used by the United States were developed, including those used in the “Space Race) and to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, where many of the astronauts sent into space by the United States were trained, including the men who landed on the Moon and where the design and construction of space vehicles and space stations such as the Saturn V rocket, the Space Shuttle, Skylab and the U.S. modules of the International Space Station took place.

Although a cartoon coyote might not be seen strapped to a rocket trying to chase after a bird, models of Apollo program rockets that helped land humanity on the Moon can be found on the Marshall Space Flight Center grounds.  But elsewhere in Montgomery buyers will find quiet and peaceful neighborhoods, great amenities and best of all, affordable real estate.
