Huntington Reservoir was completed in 1966 as part of an Emery County irrigation and recreation project.
The name of both the town and reservoir honors the three Huntington brothers, Oliver, William, and Dimick, who first explored this area in 1855. Dimick was an interpreter for the local Indians; William was famed as a scout and explorer; and Oliver was an official recorder for the unsuccessful Elk Mountain Mission to Moab. The town of Huntington was founded in 1877.
