Top 20 Photos of Huntington


On a blustery day in winter, our staff was reflecting on the nearly 30-year history of sharing the stories of Huntington. Documenting our hometown for so long, we began to recall some of the best photos we’ve seen and taken throughout the years. This sparked an idea to share the Top 20 Photos of Huntington with our readers. We scoured and searched our files and computers before settling on the following shots. We tried to be inclusive of a diverse range of photos, including different seasons, landmarks and a few spots that make Huntington unique. While there are several iconic, historical photos of our city, we’re saving those for a future issue — so keep your eyes peeled! For now, enjoy these beautiful, eye-catching Top 20 Photos of our beloved city.
