Huntsburg was named for Dr. Eben Hunt, one of the first owners who purchased this Western Reserve land from the Connecticut Land Company in 1803. Huntsburg Township was first settled in August 1808 by Stephen Pomeroy, coming from Northampton, Massachusetts and with his family, were the first pioneer settlers in Huntsburg. The first religious meeting was held in his log cabin and the first sermon was preached in 1809 by Rev. Joseph Badger. Ten years later the Church was formally organized with Rev. William Strong as Pastor. In 1831 the Congregationalists erected the building now occupied by the Huntsburg Congregational Church.
