Nestled between the banks of the majestic Ohio River and the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains is a city founded in 1871 by railroad magnate Collis P. Huntington. From its humble beginnings on the site of a former cornfield, the Huntington, West Virginia area now boasts a population in excess of 315,000, a nationally-recognized university, a thriving business community and a revitalized downtown. The community also affords a comfortable lifestyle, a low cost of living, state of the art health care, modern educational facilities and unrivaled natural beauty. This City Guide chronicles much of what this diverse community has to offer including entertainment, shopping, dining, health care, education and culture. It is our hope that this issue will help spread the word about one of the best kept secrets in America.
