15 Things to Do in Huntington – West Virginia's Second-Largest City

By Jason Barnette

West Virginia

Huntington was incorporated in 1871 and named in honor of Collis P. Huntington, a wealthy railroad tycoon.

Huntington built the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway between the mountain town and Richmond, Virginia.

The city became a commerce hub, a boom that lasted until the Great Flood of 1937.

Today, West Virginia's second largest city is a booming college and tourism town along the Ohio River.
