Brief History[edit | edit source]

Huntington was chartered on June 7, 1763. The town was named New Huntington in the grant. The "New" was dropped by Legislative action in 1795.

The first town's Post Office was established in 1827 as Huntingdon, and it took fifteen years of protests from townspeople to get the spelling corrected.

So much of Huntington's land is mountainous that most of the peaks have not been officially named. Camel's Hump State Forest takes up much of the eastern portion of the town.  [1]  [2]
