Huntington, West Virginia remains a center for arts and culture in the Mountain State. In its early days, the Ohio River provided the lifeblood to the city as steamships carrying coal and timber from the surrounding mountains used Huntington as a port. While other cities have suffered from urban decay following deindustrialization, Huntington still remains a lively city and has preserved many of its historic buildings, converting them into eclectic mixes of shops and restaurants. The Ritter Park Historic District contains more than 70 large restored historic homes that exemplify notable architectural styles from the 20th century.
Additionally, Huntington houses Marshall University, which sits at the heart of the city. In addition to containing many historic buildings, the school also brings in young people to the city and contributes to the city's arts scene. Huntington also benefits from the large crowds that pour into the city to view the legendary football games at Marshall.
