Huntoon

Huntoon, on State Highway 15 in northeastern Ochiltree County, was laid out in 1919 on the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway and named for Joel M. Huntoon, a former director of the railway. A general store and a grain elevator were built in 1927, but by 1933 the store had closed. A post office operated in Huntoon from 1921 until the 1930s. In 1948 the school was discontinued, when Booker, five miles east, absorbed part of the school district. In 1984 and 1990 Huntoon had a population of twenty-one and no businesses.
