The city of Huntsville, Alabama, is the county seat of Madison County and is also partially in Limestone County. Originally incorporated in 1811 as Twickenham, it was later renamed after its first settler and Revolutionary War hero, John Hunt. It is nicknamed Rocket City due to the fact that rocket scientist Wernher von Braun and his team developed the space program at Redstone Arsenal there.
