Town Clerk’s Archives

The purpose of the Archives is to collect, preserve and provide access to the permanent records generated by the various departments of the Town of Huntington, as well as ensure that these records will be available for future generations. Archival activities enrich education, improve access to historical records and serve as a source of information for residents, teachers, students, community groups and a range of researchers. In addition, our activities help showcase the Town’s historical organizations and historical sites.

History

The Archives was created in 1993 under the direction of Town Clerk and Records Management Officer Jo-Ann Raia. 

The Archives house some 1,250 linear feet of historical documents and municipal history documenting the Town’s founding and growth. The manuscript collection consists of over 300 volumes and 45 linear feet of material dating back to our founding 1653.
