bullet  General Notes:

One of the oldest villages in the county, Huntsville is a small trading center of the farming community in the western portion of Schuyler. It has a population of fifty, a number of retail stores and a post office. The village was founded in 1836 by William Spangler, Willis G. Moffitt, John T. Gast, George H. Briscoe, Samuel Warren and John L. Ewing. One of this group, William Spangler, was the first settler of what is now Huntsville Township. He arrived in 1832, but instead of coming from the East, as was customary then, Spangler came from the West\emdash from Quincy, Illinois. The township today has a population of 496 and is entirely devoted to agriculture.
