The town of Huntington has a documented history that dates back to its founding in 1653. The harbors were principally involved in shipping and shipbuilding, and the lush land was ideal for agriculture. When the railroad arrived in the 1860s and then later the automobile, Huntington, part of the Gold Coast of Long Island, became a destination for city residents looking for an escape to fresh air, beaches, and comfortable surroundings. Stately mansions were built, and the villages bustled with new businesses, entertainment, and architecture. That era has been captured in the postcards sent and collected during that time, adding to the social history of Huntington.
