The City of Huron was founded in 1877 and incorporated in 1951.
Huron lies in the San Joaquin Valley's vast west-side region. Huron is nine
miles east of Interstate 5 (I-5) and three miles south of Highway 198.
Lassen Avenue (Highway 269) runs north and south through the city providing
easy access for local produce to major markets.
Over 7,400 residents call Huron their hometown. During the long harvest season,
April to November, the city's population increases to over 9,000. The local
economy is primarily based in agricultural and ag-related industry.
Fresno, the County seat, is fifty miles north of Huron, and San Francisco and
Los Angeles are within a three hour drive.
Huron has been designated an Enterprise Zone Community.
