Huntington was named for Collis P. Huntington, who founded Huntington in 1870 as the western terminus for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway on the land west of the mouth of the Guyandotte River at the Ohio River. The fertile land, it seemed to Huntington, was ripe for growing a city bustling with industry and commerce. His vision became a thriving reality.
Huntington is a city in Cabell and Wayne counties in West Virginia, along the Ohio River.
