Private Act of 1978

Huntingdon Special School District  was initially created by the Private Act of 1919. Since that time, the Private Act has been amended several times until the district stands as it is today. For example:
Description of the boundaries of the Huntingdon Special School District created by Private Act of 1919, Chapter No. 374, House Bill 575 and amended by Private Act of 1957, Chapter No. 286, House Bill No. 812 and Private Act of 1978, Chapter No. 255, House Bill 2559.

Be it enacted by the general assembly of the state of Tennessee that a Special School District be, and the same is, hereby created and established, embracing all of the Tenth Civil District, portions of the Seventh, Eighth, Eleventh, Twelfth, Fifteenth, Nineteenth, and Twenty-Third Civil Districts of Carroll County, Tennessee, and including the Town of Huntingdon to be known and designated as the Huntingdon Special School District.

The boundaries of the district were set and Huntingdon Special School District has been the place where many students have spent the young years of their lives receiving a top-notch education. The district has also been, and continues to be, the home to many great teachers and staff.

Additionally, the picture on the main page is of the old Huntingdon High School built in 1935. It was torn down in 1998 after the construction of the new Huntingdon Middle School.
