Huron Historical Society
Huron, Ohio is located on the southern most point of Lake Erie, midway between Toledo and Cleveland, Ohio. Since 1838, Huron has been a part of Erie County. Prior to 1838, it was a part of Huron County.
In 2003, the reorganized Huron Historical Society began leasing space from the newly expanded and renovated public library. Today, the Huron Historical Society’s mission is to acquire, preserve, interpret, study, maintain and exhibit historical documents, photographs and other materials relating to the history and progress of the Huron community. Members and visitors are able to conduct research in the society’s office and programs of historical significance to Huron and the Firelands are offered during the year.
The Society is located on the lower level of the Huron Public Library, 333 Williams Street, Huron, OH 44839
