Huntingdon is a neighbourhood in the city of Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. It is immediately north of the Canada–US border and serves as the Sumas-Huntingdon Border Crossing. Highway 11 is the primary thoroughfare through the community. The name of the community is also the name of the current border crossing that connects to Sumas, Washington.
Collis P. Huntington, a Union Pacific Railroad railway executive who helped connect the Canadian Pacific Railway line to US Lines, inspired the name. The CPR desired a direct BC connection to Seattle, south, and into California, so it constructed a bridge at Mission and a train line through Matsqui Prairie to connect with the Seattle, Lake Shore, and Eastern Railway. The Northern Pacific Railway, Union Pacific Railroad, and Milwaukee Roads built lines to Sumas with the intention of eventually reaching Vancouver, but never crossed the border. The BC Electric Railway and the Great Northern Railway did construct to Huntingdon and into the eastern Fraser Valley.
Ed Fast, Member of Parliament for Abbotsford, is driving a campaign to rename the border crossing Abbotsford.
