Huron is a city in Erie County, Ohio, United States. The population was 7,149 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Sandusky, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area. Huron Township surrounds the City of Huron.History and cultureHuron Township was at the center of the "Firelands" region of the Connecticut Western Reserve, lands that were offered to residents of Connecticut who had lost property to British forces during the American Revolutionary War. The first permanent settler in the area that became Huron Township was a Quebec-born trapper, trader and interpreter named John Baptiste Flammond ("Fleming"), who established a trading post about a mile inland along the east bank of the Huron River in 1805. Other French traders had preceded him, including Gabriel Hunot in the 1780s.Huron Township was established in 1809. Huron Village was later established when a town plat was drawn and port facilities at the mouth of the Huron River were developed between 1821 and 1824; and the town quickly became a major shipbuilding center in the 1830s. The current community of Huron is often mistaken to have been the same as the "town plat of Huron" (also known as "the old County Seat" village), which was established in 1815, and was actually within the present Milan Township (formerly known as Avery Township before 1821).
