Huntington Rural Cemetery is managed by Huntington Rural Cemetery Association.
The Huntington Rural Cemetery is a private, not-for-profit cemetery located south of the center of Huntington Village,
between New York Avenue and Oakwood Roads. The cemetery was incorporated in March 1851, pursuant to a law governing the management of rural cemeteries in New York State adopted in 1847. It is one of the earliest rural cemeteries in New York State to be incorporated under this law. The management of the cemetery is governed by a nine member Board of Directors.
Initially the cemetery association purchased 10 acres consisting of a portion of the farm of Abel K. Conklin, whose family
later donated the David Conklin Farmhouse to the Huntington Historical Society in 1911. A map of burial plots was drafted in 1853 and the first burial, the child of Isaac Hull took place in September 2, 1853. Within 10 years several sections were added. Purchases of additional land were made in 1866, 1892, 1893, 1896, and 1924. Today approximately 20 of those acres contain burial plots, with the remainder still woods.
