A brief history of Huntingdon (2006)

Huntingdon is a small town located about 75 kilometres southwest of Montreal, in Quebec. It is the home of the Huntingdon Learning Centre, a nonprofit organization that offers workshops, in both French and English, in basic reading, writing and mathematics.

This document, a brief history of the town of Huntingdon, was researched and written by one of the learners at the centre. Gordon Hope is the winner of the 2007 Canada Post Literacy Award for individual achievement.

He explains how the settlement was established, and notes that it was called by several different names before becoming known as Huntingdon in 1825. He also discusses the town’s economic history; milestones like the implementation of phone service; and the establishment of the first school.

The document is illustrated with historic photographs.
