Introduction

The Town of Huron is beautifully situated.  Bordered by Lake Ontario on the north, the Great Sodus Bay on the west and Port Bay on the east, Huron remains a picturesque, rural setting with rolling hills, orchards, farmlands and vineyards blended with vast wooded areas.  A hunting and fishing paradise, a place where agriculture, resort and industry come together in harmony with its natural beauty.
