A Story of the Huntington Historical Society:  1903 - 1953

This is a reproduction of a booklet describing the progress of the Huntington Historical Society over its first 50 years.  This booklet was published in the 1950's in order to honor the Society's progress over that period.  You will note that the Society, at the end of its first 50 years, owned and maintained only one property, the David Conklin Farmhouse.  During its second 50 years the Historical Society has acquired four more properties and thousands of additional artifacts. 

The last paragraph of the booklet states:  "No society stands still, and in this the 50th year, there is every reason to believe that with the help of each and every member, greater things may be achieved in future years by The Huntington Historical Society."

The Huntington Historical Society continues to grow after its first 100 years and add value for the Huntington Community.  We hope you will enjoy this trip into the past.  After all, what could be more appropriate for our organization.
