A lovely view of the borough of Huntingdon, in Huntingdon County, PA. Located on the Juniata River, this town is the county seat and is approximately 92 miles from Harrisburg. The main view is surrounded by 22 vignettes of various buildings in the borough. One of these vignettes depicts the Normal School which was the precursor to Juniata College. Established in 1876 as the Huntingdon Normal School, the school changed its name in 1877 to Brethren Normal School and then again in 1894 to Juniata College.
