Huntingdon County is the home of one of Pennsylvania's "crown jewels," Raystown Lake. Completed in 1973 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as a flood control reservoir project, the lake covers 8,300 acres and provides Huntingdon's 895 square miles of ridges and valleys provides fertile ground for the production of sand, timber and limestone.

Two state correctional institutions, FCI Electronics, Mead school/office products, Bonney Forge Corp., Advanced Glass Fiber Yarns, and LLC are the county's major employers. They produce electronic connectors, school and office products, metal fittings, fiberglass yarn and materials.

Huntingdon County is the permanent home of the famous 'star' of the 1968 move, "The Love Bug." Herbie, the 1963 Volkswagon Beetle featured in the movie, is housed at the Swigart Museum.
