Huntington History

The Huntington neighborhood is known for its many two-story brick duplexes built in the 1940s to house veterans returning from World War II. In 1970, Metro acquired 20 acres of the nearby Mount Eagle property to build the Huntington Metro station, along the Yellow line, which now anchors the neighborhood.

The Huntington neighborhood is bordered to the west by Kings Highway, by Richmond Highway to the southeast, and to the south by Jefferson Manor. It is conveniently located near the Capital Beltway and George Washington Parkway. This area’s proximity to the Metro and various bus lines makes it a highly sought-after neighborhood. 

Today, Huntington is home to a mix of housing, including new construction high-rise condos and a few low, rambling garden apartments converted to condos. 2023 sales in Huntington were in the high $400-$500K range for its two-bedroom, semi-detached homes.
