Heritage Village

-A A +A
East side of 11th St. between 3rd Ave. and Veterans Memorial Blvd.

Several old buildings, relocated here to create an old-timey atmosphere of Victorian-era Huntington, cluster around a former railroad depot, still on its original site. The village, made possible by an urban renewal project that cleared much of the area, opened in 1977. In addition to the buildings, railroad cars, adapted to new uses, and a steam locomotive provide appropriate ambience.
