The Old Huntington Cemetery is located just south of town, being 3-1/2 blocks south of old Highway 30 at the junction of the old pioneer freight road reservoir. This is an early pioneer cemetery.

The cemetery is small and is fenced. It is not maintained but is on dry land needing little attention. About five years ago the cemetery was badly vandalized by high school boys who removed the stones and threw them into a canyon, breaking them. The pieces were later returned. All but two stones were lying down when the cemetery was visited in 1967.

It is believed that several Chinese were buried here, however, local opinion has it that most of the remains were exhumed and shipped to China about 1910. These Chinese came to this vicinity following the gold rush in the latter part of the last century.

The following burials have been identified:

The IOOF Lodge of Huntington established a cemetery one-half mile east of town on the north side of U. S. Highway No. 30. This cemetery followed the earlier Old Huntington Cemetery which was already established closer to town. Land for the cemetery was donated by the lodge.
