Downtown

-A A +A

Downtown Huntington, between 3rd and 6th avenues from north to south, and extending between 7th and 10th streets east and west, contains a solid concentration of civic and commercial structures. The almost imperceptible widening of 5th Avenue between 8th and 9th streets is a remnant of Government Square, formerly a muster point for parades. In 1985 the Downtown Huntington Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. More recently, 9th Street between 3rd and 5th avenues has become a pedestrian plaza. Although 4th Avenue carries traffic in both directions, 3rd Avenue is one way east to west, and 5th Avenue is one way west to east.
