Living in Port Huron, MI

Port Huron became an incorporated city in 1857 after successful shipbuilding and lumber trades led to a population boom. The city’s location was very important for trade, as loggers floated the products of the great pine forests down the St. Clair and Black Rivers to the mill at Port Huron. The region offered top-notch fishing, hunting and business opportunities to new settlers who relocated from the North Atlantic states through the 19th and 20th centuries for a more relaxed life. Port Huron was designated as the county seat of St. Clair County in 1871 only to be devastated soon after by the Port Huron Fire.

From its creation, Port Huron has held the distinction as one of the most naturally beautiful and ideally located cities in Michigan. Nestled between broad river trails to the north and lush farmland to the west and southeast, Port Huron is perfectly located to enjoy the beauty of the Great Lakes region.
