Cabell-Huntington, WV

Huntington sits on the mid-section of the scenic and historic Ohio River at the point where West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky meet. Our city is home to some 56,000 citizens and serves a Tri-State population of 365,000.

Huntington is the turn-of-the-century railroad kingdom named for its founder, Collis P. Huntington. He was the builder, owner and operator of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, beginning in the 1860's. In 1884, he became the first man in the United States to ride his own railroad car from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific over tracks he either owned or controlled.

Rose Garden of Ritter Park

Our picturesque city is a year-round destination for beautiful scenery. Those who come in the Spring can enjoy the abundance of colorful blooming dogwood trees that are trademarks of the residential areas. By mid-summer the Rose Garden of Ritter Park is in full bloom and ready for weddings and garden parties. Winter in Huntington provides a beautiful blanket of white snow, and outdoor fun for children and adults! Fall foliage in Huntington presents a gorgeous hillside of orange and yellow trees and a brisk mountain air that will inspire your senses.

The downtown area provides more for your pleasure in the way of shopping and entertainment, including a beautiful town square that offers a nostalgic nod to Huntington’s railroad beginnings.  Year-round, a variety of festivals and special events take place around the downtown area, Pullman Square, Civic Arena and historic Keith-Albee Theater.

Located near the junction of the Mud and Guyandotte Rivers, the Barboursville area was a crossroads for Shawnee Indians. Hunting plentiful game and mining the salt near Salt Rock, West Virginia, they along with the buffalo established early, well-used trails.

In 1930, Route 60 bypassed the village and with river and rail business disappearing, Barboursville became a quiet, residential setting of historic homes.

You can travel back in time with a historic walking tour of Barboursville that features 36 points of interest including homes, banks, businesses and other historic sites.

Today Barboursville offers a modern mall complex with over 150 stores and restaurants. Historic downtown Barboursville is also home to a busy main street area with shopping and restaurants, as well as its own share of festivals and special events throughout the year.

On September 16, 1876, the Town of Milton was incorporated. In January of the same year a covered bridge was opened to provide access from James River Turnpike to the newly established town. Nearby is the historic Union Baptist Church, organized in 1810, which was used during the Civil War by Union troops who occupied the building as a military post.
