Huntington was originally settled in 1653 and is closely tied to the early development of the American colonies. Water transportation was the lifeline to the community, and was for over two centuries. Natural harbors provided ready access to farms on the interior of Long Island. Later, the whaling industry, and increased manufacturing activity, grew the local economy. The community also expanded with the arrival of the Long Island Rail Road in 1867, until the population exploded at the end of WWII. Homes and resorts now took the place of what had once been farmland. The area became a summer retreat for those wanting a break from city life.
