1897 Old Log Cabin, southwest corner of 5th Avenue and 11th Street. This photo appears in the book "Cabell County Annals and Families" by George Seldon Wallace, 1935, on page 262. The book further states the the cabin was the home of John Q. and Eliza Adams. The home of Bradley Waters Foster was later located on this property and which later became the Children's Hospital circa 1928. This building was later razed and is the present location of the Huntington Federal Savings Bank.

On Sunday morning, Jan. 17, 1909, the first edition of The Herald-Dispatch appeared on the streets of Huntington. Fast-forward 101 years, and that's a lot of history.

We have discovered a treasure trove of old negatives and photos at The Herald-Dispatch. Some of the images, we know. Others, we have no idea.

In the coming months, we will scan the negatives and photos, which are crumbling and degrading as the years pass. We will create photo galleries with the images and add what caption information we know.

Browse through the gallery. If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), e-mail online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com or call 304-526-2764. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
