Gallery: Construction of the Huntington Mall
The Huntington Mall, located in Barboursville, opened in 1981, more than five years after initial talks started. Today, the mall averages in the hundreds of millions of dollars in retail trade, changing the landscape of the region’s economic climate.
On Sunday, Jan. 17, 1909, the first edition of The Herald-Dispatch hit the streets in Huntington, and we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of that event in 2009. The Huntington Mall was voted by readers as one of the top stories of the past 100 years.
Check out our 100 Years site at http://www.herald-dispatch.com/specialsections/100years, and be sure to pick up a copy of our 100th Anniversary Commemorative Edition on Saturday, Jan. 17.
