|no tourist information on Wikidata:|
Huntsville was founded in 1805. In the first 140 years of its history, the city was a sleepy city, living mainly on cotton. In 1950, Dr. Wernher von Braun and his team of German rocket scientists began their work at Redstone Arsenal. Within a decade, the city became a center for missile research and construction. In 1960, the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center opened, which played an important role in Redstone (named after Redstone Arsenal), Gemini and Apollo space programs. The city is still a center for the development of missile defense and aeronautical technologies with companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop Grumman. Cummings Research Park, the country's second largest research park, is home to many of these companies.
