Campus #805

The South's Premier Brewery & Entertainment Venue From 1951 to 2009, the site of Campus No. 805 helped to educate thousands of students in Huntsville and Madison County, creating an academic and athletic legacy that will live on for generations to come. The Stone Center building at Campus No. 805 first took shape as S.R. Butler High School, named in honor of Samuel Riley Butler. It began as a county school in 1951 and became part of the city school system in 1956. The Huntsville City School system closed Stone Middle School in 2009 and put the property on the market to sell. It took five years to find a buyer. In 2014, a developer purchased the property to create a unique development that would preserve the legacy of the school and offer a dynamic entertainment venue for the community. Straight to Ale Brewery and Yellowhammer Brewery were the first tenants to sign on for the new project. The project became Campus No. 805. The name pays homage to memories held by thousands of students, teachers, parents and administrators that were part of this campus, and to the West Huntsville neighborhood by claiming the last three digits of their zip code - 35805. To recapture and preserve the athletic fields, the City of Huntsville created an urban park with a recreational lawn that connects the new and old buildings. The public park is appropriately named S.R. Butler Green. In 2016, Huntsville’s Historic Preservation Consultant recognized the 13-acre project for its preservation and adaptive reuse of an important community place. From our landmark location in the heart of the city, Campus No. 805 has become the connecting point for the re-surging West Huntsville neighborhoods and the treasured historic districts and the hundreds of exciting new loft residences in downtown. Newly transformed as the Stone Event Center, the refurbished school building offers a variety of multi-use space for private rental and has become a popular event venue for young professionals and the hospitality industry. The Stone Center building and the new 16,000 square foot Student Union has attracted a growing list of tenants to include craft breweries, restaurants, catering, bars, retail and entertainment venues.

Weeden House Museum

Built in 1819, the house at 300 Gates Avenue is now open to the public as the Weeden House Museum and Garden. Dr. William Weeden bought the house in 1845 and his descendants owned it until 1956. Now owned by the City of Huntsville, it is maintained as a 19th century house museum. Earlier residents included 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, lived in the house, and his portrait painted by John Grimes hangs in the house today. The Weeden family 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. Maria Howard Weeden possessed the rare ability to record its essence for others to enjoy. The paintings and poems that fill the pages of her four published books (1898-1904) bear plentiful evidence of this talent. Not only was she able to picture the beauty of the daintiest wild flower or the most luscious rose, but to an even greater degree her pen and brush could capture and distill beauty of character in the portrait of an individual - most notably, African Americans who resided in Huntsville at the turn of the 20th century. Howard was born in the house in July 1846, and resided here until her death in 1905.
