A view of the lake at Heckscher Park

A view of the lake at Heckscher Park in Huntington. The 18-acre park is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is considered historically and culturally significant because of three buildings on the property: an octagonal cobblestone gazebo, a cobblestone cottage and the Heckscher Museum of Art building. They were all built when the park was established in 1920 by August Heckscher, a wealthy industrialist and philanthropist. (Feb. 7, 2012) (Credit: Carl Corry)
