The Arabella and Henry Huntington Heritage Society

Huntington Legacy

Arabella and Henry Huntington dreamed of building, preserving, and sharing their magnificent collections for the "advancement of learning, the arts and sciences, and to promote the public welfare." Their dream was realized with their founding gifts and bequests, and it endures thanks in large part to the vision and generosity of countless others who believe in and support The Huntington's mission.

Membership in Heritage Society
