The City of Huron was founded in 1877 and incorporated in 1951. Huron lies in the San Joaquin Valley’s vast westside region. Huron is nine miles east of Interstate 5 (I5) 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. The local economy is primarily based in agricultural and agrelated industry. Fresno, the County seat, is sixty miles north of Huron, and San Francisco and Los Angeles are within a three hour drive. Huron has been designated an Enterprise Zone Community.
