Huron County      
Huron County is mainly agricultural, offering farm landscapes  and small towns inland and marinas and sandy beaches along Lake Huron,  alongside many conservation areas and parks, such as the Morris Tract  Provincial Nature Reserve, east of Goderich. This reserve has 58  hectares of upland forest with microclimates in its steep valleys.  Supporting 14 species of plants classified as provin-cially rare, it is a  haven for birds that need large expanses of mature trees to nest.  Goderich was once the original headquarters of the Canada Company, which  opened the vast Huron Tract between Guelph and Goderich to settlement  back in the 1830s. Today it is hard to visualize this prime farmland as a  forest "so thick even a 12-foot-wide road did not allow much sunlight  through the canopy."      
Bayfield [D1] Bayfield is a delightful village featuring a  marina, beach, many shops and boutiques, and a heritage walking tour.  The Folmar Windmill just north of town is the only wind-driven sawmill  and gristmill in North America. Bannockburn Wildlife Area's 1 km  boardwalk offers an easy walk through beautiful natural surroundings.      
Blyth [C3] The nationally recognized Blyth Festival offers  summer theater set in the Memorial Community Hall from June to  September. The Blyth Station House is a unique bed-and-break-fast in a  converted train station. This community of some 900 people is also  well-known for leather and wool fashion outlets.      
Clinton [D2] Nine handsome outdoor murals grace town buildings  showing historical events or accomplishments in the area. The CNR School  on Wheels was one of seven railway cars that helped bring education to  rural Ontario. Summer Sundays feature harness racing at Clinton Raceway  with swimming and picnicking in the nearby community park.      
Goderich [C1] Queen Elizabeth II once called Goderich "The  Prettiest Town in Canada." Built on a bluff overlooking Lake Huron, the  town affords numerous spectacular viewpoints of the lake and the harbor,  the deepest on the Canadian side of Lake Huron. Cool off in the lake at  one of three beaches, all connected by boardwalks, and see tugboats  guide vessels into the harbor. The lighthouse built in 1847 still serves  as a navigation beacon. ┬«The Huron County Museum has exhibits depicting  the early settlement and development of the county, including an  original 1856 school, a log cabin, militia uniforms, World War I  military equipment, ladies fashions, and a bicycle collection. The  County Archives are also found here. The Marine Museum, located in the  wheelhouse of the SS Shelter Bay, a Great Lakes freighter, is dedicated  to the men and women who made their living on Lake Huron. The octagonal  Huron Historic Gaol served as the county jail for 130 years.      
Listowel [C6] Graced with Victorian architecture, Listowel was  first settled by one John Binning in 1852, who acquired the townsite in  exchange for a rifle. Listowel is the birthplace of painter Horatio  Walker (1858-1938), famous for his portrayals of farming life on lie  d'Orleans, Quebec.      
WlNGHAM [A4]      
Wingham is Canada's "Radio and Television Town." Located in the  former Wingham Post Office, the Wingham Museum shows the  accomplishments of local citizens and the history of CKNX radio station,  started in 1926 when W. T. "Doc" Cruickshank built a tiny radio  transmitter from a drawing in Popular Mechanics magazine. Wingham is  also home to The Barn Dance Hall of Fame.
