Huntington, WV is a city that stretches into both Cabell and Wayne counties and can be found on the Ohio River, and at the mouth of the Guyandotte River (where Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky meet). Huntington is home to the Port of Huntington Tri-State, which is the second busiest inland port in the United States. Commonly referred to as H-Town, Huntington is a lively city where heritage comes alive with Appalachian workmanship, Southern hospitality and unique flavor that is second to none. In its early days, this flourishing port city was full of steam boats which shipped lumber and coal to supply the expansion of the railroad to the west. Today, Huntington is the hub of the Huntington-Ashland-Ironton Metropolitan Area and is the second largest city in the state. Huntington is also home to Marshall University, one of the biggest employers in town and primary contributor to the core of the community. H-Town's downtown area offers many shopping and dining options such as the Huntington Mall (the largest in West Virginia), Pullman Square and the Big Sandy Superstore Arena. Huntington's reputable health care system consists of the Cabell Huntington Hospital, St. Mary's Medical Center and Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. Huntington also boasts an impressive park system, including Ritter Park, PetSafe Dog Park, the Rose Garden and most recently KineticPark, which is a leading technology park on Sixteenth Street near the I-64 Interchange, and includes a 70,000 square foot Amazon customer service center. Beyond the hills of Ritter Park, you will find the Huntington Museum of Art, which is the largest art museum between Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Richmond. Here you will also find West Virginia’s only plant conservatory, the C. Fred Edwards Conservatory.
