History of Huntington

This east coast city’s history is closely associated with the early development of the American colonies, as it is centrally located to the immigration hub of New York City. There is record of community settlement dating back to 1653 when New England colonists were settling along the coastal region. The waterways quickly made transportation and exchange a vital part of the town’s livelihood and its natural harbors offered accessibility to farmland and agricultural growth for centuries, and also promoted the use of the beautiful beaches and park sites that developed into the easily accessible and beautiful recreation areas still enjoyed today.
