Since 1989, the monthly Old Huntsville Magazine has documented stories written by local residents. These articles present memories of Huntsville’s past and its people – memories ranging from the 1800s and including heartwarming stories, cold-blooded murders, Civil War activity in this area, bootleggers during the 1920s, and rocket testing in the 1960s. Learn how the magazine began, why Tom and Cathey Carney chose to create Old Huntsville, the progression of the magazine, and some events along the way. Hear about how YOU can submit a story for publication in the magazine, as articles are not written by staff writers;they are written by people in the community who have a story to tell. The importance of documenting family memories in writing, so that family members live on in these stories, is stressed. Once family members are gone, their memories are gone too, unless these have been written down for future generations.
