About City of Huntington

The City of Huntington was founded in 1871 when it became the western terminus of the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad. The founding fathers wasted no time in providing for the safety and security of its citizens. Isaac H. Mitchell was appointed Town Marshal at the first meeting of the town council on January 6, 1872. The council soon authorized Marshal Mitchell to appoint special police when the circus or other special events came to town. It was determined that a night policeman should also be hired at a rate of $1.25 per night and $1.50 per night during winter months. City council made an order on June 6, 1876 requiring each officer to provide themselves with a uniform and a star. This is the first indication of a uniform being worn by policemen in Huntington.
