Though originally inhabited by the Ojibwa Indians, the first European settlement here was a temporary French trading post in the 17th Century. This makeshift post was soon abandoned, however. After the War of 1812, the American government built Fort Gratiot here in 1814, followed by the creation of this town in 1857.
Today, Port Huron is known for its Canadian lifestyle, bridge, lighthouse, lakeside and riverside views, downtown area, and two paper mills.
