Huron was founded sometime following the Civil War when Huron Gist established a general store in order to serve the local farmers. A church and schoolhouse soon followed, as well as a stone gristmill. When the community applied for a post office, they decided on the name Huron. The post office was established in 1897, and was in operation until 1904.[2]

By the late 1960s the community had two churches, as well as a number of dwellings.[3]
