Discover Huntington

Nestled between the banks of the majestic Ohio River and the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains is a city founded in 1871 by railroad magnate Collis P. Huntington.

From its humble beginnings on the site of a former cornfield, the Huntington, West Virginia region now boasts a nationally-recognized university, a thriving business community and a downtown with big plans for the future.

The community also affords a comfortable lifestyle, a low cost of living, state-of-the-art health care, modern educational facilities and unrivaled natural beauty.

The Huntington area is located in the heart of the Tri-State region of West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. This area is approximately halfway between Pittsburgh, PA and Louisville, KY along a strategic east-west corridor.

People and products move smoothly throughout the Tri-State region, thanks to an efficient transportation network that includes the Tri-State Airport, the largest tonnage barge port on the Ohio River, an interstate highway system that conveniently links the area to the Midwest, East Coast and Southern markets, as well as superior rail networks.

The Huntington area is within a 24 hour drive of 44% of the U.S. industrial market and 37% of the U.S. consumer market.
