You may know it as the Town of Huntington, but on Halloween it’s officially known as ‘Hauntington.’ This is thanks for 7-year-old resident of Huntington, Angelica Dee Cunningham.
Cunningham wrote a letter to Huntington Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci with the idea to change the Town’s name to “Hauntington,” and Lupinacci agreed!

Cunningham attends Washington Primary School, and she explained in her letter that she loves dressing up for Halloween and trick-or-treating with her friends. She went on further to explain that the name change to ‘Hauntington,’ “would be fun to say for me, my friends and all of the citizens of Huntington.”
On the Tuesday (the day before Halloween), the Town Board renamed the Town of Huntington to the Town of Hauntington.
