Farm equipment stands at the ready.
Huntingdon was founded in 1767 by Rev. William Smith on the site of the aboriginal Standing Stone near the junction ofthe present-day Juniata River and Standing Stone Creek. Much of the town retains the form given it by Smith, who was then provost of the University of Pennsylvania.
A replica of the original Standing Stone stands at the intersection of Penn and William Smith Streets in the Downtown Huntingdon Historic District. With the creation of Huntingdon County in 1787, Huntingdon became its County Seat, and in 1796 Huntingdon was chartered as Huntingdon Borough.
