History & History Related Items

Huntington history: Henry Miller settled here in August of 1862 and built the Stage Tavern known for many years as "Miller Station". It was on the overland route that had been established in the valley, and had become well known to all who traveled in pioneer days. The place was bought out in 1882 by J.B. Huntington. They maintained a small trading poston their land. The town was named for J.B. and J.M. Huntington, who were brothers. J. M. Huntington was the first postmaster. In 1884, the rails of the Oregon Short Line and the Oregon Railway & Navigation Company line were joined in Huntington. With the advent of the railroad came J.T. Fifer, who had been selling general merchandise to the construction crews, moving his goods from town to town as the work progressed. Shortly after Fifer arrived, the Huntingtons closed up, leaving him alone in the general merchandise business. But soon followed the Oregon Construction Company, with a stock of general merchandise, a blacksmith shop, the Pacific Hotel, several boarding houses, restaurants and a number of saloons. Since that time, Huntington has been an important railway division point.
