Slaughter Road forms the boundary between Huntsville and Madison; Huntsville to the east and Madison to the West. Heading South on Slaughter Road will take you to Madison Blvd (aka Rte 20), while heading North will take you to US 72 (aka University Drive). North of US 72, Slaughter Road becomes Jeff Road. Are you following me so far? :) Just to confuse the issue a little further, some sections to the East of Slaughter Road have been annexed into Madison, while some sections to the West have been annexed into Huntsville. With the exception of Windstone, the neighborhoods below are focused around the junction of Slaughter Road and Farrow Road. Farrow Road runs directly into Cummings Research Park which, in turn offers access to Redstone Arsenal and I565 to Huntsville or Decatur. Technically speaking, Windstone is not on Slaughter Road, but it's just around the corner on Old Madison Pike, which is why I've included it here. There's a relatively new Kroger shopping center at the corner of US 72 and Jeff Road/Slaughter Road, along with restaurants and other businesses, all of which are very convenient for anyone living in these neighborhoods.
