Description

Front: Historic Huntsville
Back: Historic Huntsville, Alabama. ALABAMA A & M COLLEGE.
GREEN BOTTOM INN, one of Huntsville's earliest hostelries, was located on Meridian Pike on site now occupied by Alabama A & M. Built in 1815 by John Connelly, the inn attained widespread fame for its adjoining race track, over which many of the outstanding race horses of the period competed. Gen. Andrew Jackson, an avid follower of the sport, often stopped here to race his horses and fight his cocks. For many years the table where he dined was preserved.
