History & History Related Items

Huntingdon history:

Huntingdon is located on the site of a famous old Indian village called Standing Stone, so-named because of an obelisk or stone totem pole that stood at the site for many years, through the mid 1700's. Indian legend said the local tribe would thrive as long as the stone stood, though they packed up and left by 1754. A decade later, the land was bought by one Rev. William Smith, the first administrator of the University of Pennsylvania. It so happened that one of the first benefactors of the University was the Countess of Huntingdon, one of the leading philanthropists of her time. In gratitude, Smith called his new plot of land "Huntingdon," though the locals still called the place Standing Stone for many years to come. "
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
