Community Information

An even dozen communities dot Huron County, Michigan's Thumb with half of those nestled along Lake Huron's shoreline. Peek into these profiles for everything from the weather to a contact for the local Little League or library book club.


While our community profiles can give you an idea of local population, weather and photos,  let's put Huron County into these perspectives: 

"Where The Countryside Meets the Lakeshore" 93 miles of shoreline meets 836 square miles of land. You will find the shoreline, traveled via M-25, to be mostly residential and cottage homes spaced between six shoreline communities. Travel just a mile or so inland and you will meet countryside, as in miles of farmland interspersed with woods and homes. Seven more inland communities round out Huron County's cities and villages. The centrally located county seat is Bad Axe and from here you can reach  every other community within 20 to 30 minutes. 

We are home to international manufacturing companies like Dow Agrosciences, Sensient Flavors and Tower Automotive. We are also home to the land of 'milk & honey', with 1,394 farms that ranked Huron County #1 in Michigan for the sale and acres of dry beans, sugar beets and more.
