Remnants of Green Bottom Inn

Green Bottom Inn was a famous hotel built by a Revolutionary War solider John Connelly in 1815. The hotel attracted the most notable aristocratic statesmen and politicians across the country including U.S. Presidents: Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, and James Monroe. President Monroe visited Huntsville to assure Alabama residents that joining the Union was a good idea, and would be entertained here in 1919. Unfortunately, the inn burned in 1931, and all that remains is the wall seen above.
