Huntington County is a long and narrow section of land in North Central Indiana. The population of the county is 37,125. The total land size of the county is 388 square miles. The county is part of the Fort Wayne-Huntington-Auburn micropolitan area. The lone city and county seat is Huntington.
The county is considered a little more remote compared to surrounding communities like Fort Wayne and it is far more rural compared to Indianapolis to the south. Huntington County features a great combination of quality arts, dining, shopping and entertainment while also featuring many things to do outdoors.
Huntington County occupies the vast majority of the JE Roush Fish and Wildlife Area. The natural preserve maintains over 7,000 acres of public land, including 900 acres of water. The narrow wildlife area stretches east to west and is adjacent to the Wabash River. It supports local hunters and anglers along the Huntington Lake area. The man-made reservoir was created in 1967 and is one of three Upper Wabash Valley Lakes.
Huntington County is also home to more than half of the Lost Bridge State Recreation Area. While JE Roush Fish and Wildlife Area exists to the central and eastern parts of the county, the Lost Bridge rec area is accessible on the western boundary.
Lost Bridge State Recreation Area includes Salamonie Lake, one of the more popular fishing and boating spots in northern Indiana. The lake exists between the cities of Wabash and Huntington. Activities at the 2,665-acre lake include fishing, boating, camping, hiking and bird watching. An additional 12,500+ acres of land are managed around the lake and include a variety of ponds, marshes and wetlands. There are a number of places to camp around the recreation area.
Huntington serves as the only primary city in the county. It has the nickname the “Lime City”. The population of Hungtington is 17,400. As with many other counties in the state, the Wabash and Erie Canal played instrumental roles in the early development of Huntington. The canals were completed in 1834 and brought much needed redirected water to farmland.
The city contains many attractions including the Drover Town Historic District and Hawley Heights Historic District. There are many other historic districts in the area that include popular sights like the Hotel LaFontaine and Moore/Carlew Building. The Huntington County Historical Museum provides all the details on the history of the region.
Hungtington is also home to a small university. Huntington University is a private Christian higher learning institution that is affiliated with the Church of the United Brethren in Christ and also a member of the CCCU. It opened its doors in 1897 and offers more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report has ranked Huntington University as one of the top colleges in the Midwest. Forbes gave the institution similar honors.
Huntington County has other points of interest including the Merillat Centre for the Arts and Arboretum and Botanical Garden – both of which are located on the campus of Huntington University. Other area attractions include Sunken Gardens, The Forks of the Wabash, Tel-Hy Nature Preserve and Two-EE’s Winery.
