Huntington Historical Society

Huntington Historical Society

The Huntington Historical Society began as an exclusively female organization in the early 20th century. Spawned by the success of the Town's 250th birthday celebration in 1903, the society's inception was due, in part, to the changing role of American women in the home. This change was just one of several trends which evolved as the economy of Long Island switched from an agricultural to a more industrial base.
