Huston Township, created in 1838 from the northern part of Patton Township, extends from the top of Muncy Mountain across the Bald Eagle Valley to the crest of the Alleghenies. It is named in honor of Charles Huston, a Centre County judge who later sat as a member of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Most activity has centered in the valley where the Bald Eagle Creek, the railroad tracks, and Route 220 run side-by-side throughout the Township. Martha in the west and Julian in the east are the only villages. Each began as an iron furnace community.
