The Huntington Historical Society Resource Center and Archives
Please note: The Huntington Historical Society Resource Center Will be closed for the better part of this year for expansion of the facility
At the very core of the Society is the Resource Center and Archives containing historical, genealogical, and archival materials concerning the Town of Huntington from 1653 to the present day. An invaluable resource for those interested in local history, the library and archives include manuscript items, printed and visual materials and oral histories.
Today’s News is Tomorrow’s History
The collection grows through the generous donations of family papers, business records, photographs, ephemera and other materials of interest. If you have materials you would like to donate to the Resource Center and Archives please contact us.
The Resource Center and Archives is located in the former Huntington Sewing and Trade School at 209 Main Street, Huntington Village.
Hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Due to limited staffing, appointments are strongly recommended. Researchers from out of the area should contact the archives directly in advance to confirm scheduled hours in order to make the most of their research trip.
There is a $5.00 donation per day per person for use of the collection. There is no charge for Huntington Historical Society members or students through high school. Photocopies are 25¢ each.
For those researchers unable to visit the facility in person we do offer a record search service (see details above)
You may contact the archives by mail, phone or email (See Contact Us)
