The Huntington Piano Company was established in 1894 in Shelton, Connecticut. Although manufacturing was done in Connecticut, their offices and showrooms were located in Brooklyn, New York. The Huntington Piano Company was controlled by the large Sterling Piano Company, and they built several models of uprights, player pianos and baby grand pianos until the Great Depression era.
In 1900 the famed pianist and composer Ignacy Paderewski endorsed The Huntington Piano Company. In addition to his commercial endorsements, Paderewski personally ordered a Huntington piano for the “Paderewski Singing Society” of Chicago. The Huntington Piano Company capitalized on this endorsement by applying labels with Paderewski’s photo and written endorsement inside their pianos for posterity.
Huntington was absorbed into the Winter Piano Company during the Great Depression. Winter built several lines of small consoles, spinet and baby grand pianos under the Huntington label until the the 1960s.
