Driving from downtown Huntsville to the east on highway 72 just up and over the mountains, you will enter a lovely valley surrounded by Alabama’s Appalachian foot hills. Just where the Huntsville City Limits end and Madison County begins can be difficult to tell.
Yet this unique area, effectively convenient to metro amenities, is within Madison County’s jurisdiction and school system and is a very popular destination for house hunting by many people relocating to the area.
The school system for this particular area of town includes Buckhorn High School, a national school of excellence, along with Riverton Middle School. An interesting tidbit is that the High School is located at the site of the American Civil War Battle of Buckhorn Tavern, fought on October 12, 1863.
