The original Huntington High School, located on 8th Street between 9th and 10th avenues, opened its doors on Sept. 4, 1916. By the late 1930s, the school was so overcrowded that students were forced to attend morning and afternoon shifts. The overcrowding led to the birth of Huntington East High School in 1940. When the new Huntington High opened in 1996, the old building stood vacant for some time but has since been renovated as Huntington High Renaissance Center, a multi-use facility that includes senior-citizen housing, an arts group, and a branch of the Huntington YMCA. Date is unknown.
