Huntington Woods History

A veteran of the 1812 war, J. Lockwood, received the first land grant in Huntington Woods. In 1916, part of the area was platted by Fred Remole and in 1926, Huntington Woods, which was named after Huntingdon, England, was incorporated as a village. In 1932, it was reincorporated as a city, and the indigenous people ceded the land rights to the government in 1821. It was then ceded to landowners in the 1830s. Huntington Woods is popularly referred to as the "City of Homes."
