Huron History

Huron was part of the compensatory "Firelands" or "Sufferers' Lands" which was offered to the people of Connecticut when they lost their property to the British raiders during the American Revolutionary War. John Baptiste Flemmond, a trader, trapper and interpreter, was the first settler of this region. Huron was incorporated as a village in 1809 and many years later as a city. In the 1830s, Huron became an important center for ship building. The port area was the pivot of industrial and commercial development in Huron.
