South Huntington is the birthplace of Walt Whitman, and the Walt Whitman Shops mall is nearby. It is also home to St. Anthony's High School, Walt Whitman High School and the South Huntington Public Library. The Walt Whitman Shops were previously known as the Walt Whitman Shopping Center. The department store chain Abraham & Straus purchased 45 acres in South Huntington in 1956 to build a shopping mall and parking lot. An A & S store would be built as the centerpiece of the mall. The groundbreaking ceremony for the shopping center took place on April 20, 1961. The first store to open, on March 28, 1962, was Abraham & Straus, followed by Macy's on Sept. 18, 1962. The official opening for the entire shopping center was in November 1962. It was the first enclosed shopping center on Long Island. The mall had 75 stores, lighted fountains and a reflecting pool. The parking lot had spaces for 5,000 cars.

Renovations at the mall took place in 1998 including changes to the main concourse and an elevated parking deck. Also in this time period, three new department stores were added. Bloomingdale's opened on Aug. 5, 1998 followed by Lord & Taylor on November 11, 1998. Saks Fifth Avenue opened its doors on March 11, 1999. A second renovation was completed in November 2013. This included adding 70,000 square feet to the facility as well as doing exterior remodeling. A statue of Walt Whitman was also added.

Walt Whitman Shops is currently owned by the Simon Property Group.

St. Anthony's High School opened on Sept. 12, 1984 at the former site of Holy Family High School. Formerly an all-boys high school in Smithtown, St. Anthony's student body was moved to the new location in South Huntington when the Diocese of Rockville Centre decided to close Holy Family High School. The major factor for the closure of Holy Family was declining enrollment. The move of St. Anthony's to South Huntington sparked protests by parents and students.

Funding for the 48 classroom Walt Whitman High School was approved in February 1950. A new high school was needed because of the large population growth in the school district. The cost of over $3,100,000 included purchasing 32 acres in South Huntington. Capacity for the school was set at 1,500. Groundbreaking took place on March 14, 1955. The school opened on Sept. 6, 1956.

Enrollment for the 2015–16 school year for Walt Whitman High School was 1,898.

The 49,000 square foot South Huntington Public Library, located at 145 Pidgeon Hill Road, opened to the public on July 24, 2004. The construction of the library was funded by an $11.9 million bond referendum passed on December 5, 2000 by a margin of 1,532 to 1,493. Reasons for construction of the new library included need for additional space to house the library's collections, additional computers and updated technology for patrons and a larger community room for programs. An added feature on the grounds of the library is an outdoor garden with patio seating.

The library was built on the site of the former Pidgeon Hill Elementary School.
