Huntington Station

Huntington Station
Beginnings: There wouldn't be a Huntington Station if the Long Island Rail Road hadn't built a Huntington station. In 1867, the railroad extended its tracks to the hills south of Huntington and built a depot. The hamlet was originally called Fairground – after a racetrack a mile from the station. So when a post office was established in the railroad station on July 24, 1890, it was called Fairground. But in 1912 the name of the post office and the community was changed to Huntington Station.

A couple of years ago they moved from its spot in front of Huntington Hospital to a store front in Huntington Station, they had hoped to sell the church but because of the churches historic status they could not sell it easily. They are now back in the original building and are hoping the town will buy the church which has two houses on the property, that serve as the parsonage. (Newsday / Alan Raia)
