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.

We are in the process of developing this web page for the Town of Huron.  Please bear with us and watch it grow!
