During the 1840s and 1850s, Huntsville was the cotton trading center of the Tennessee Valley. In 1855, the Memphis and Charleston Railroad was built in Huntsville, and this was the first railway to link the lower Mississippi with the Atlantic coast. Industry in Huntsville declined in the 1930s with the Great Depression, but turned around after World War II. In 1950, German rocket scientists were brought to the Redstone Arsenal to develop rockets for the US Army. They developed the first rocket to orbit America’s first satellite. Today, Huntsville continues to play a major role in space technology with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command at the Redstone Arsenal.
