Norwalk was founded in 1817 by settlers from Connecticut whose lands were burned by the British during the American Revolution. As the heart of the “Firelands” and the county seat for Huron County, Norwalk
is known for its entrepreneurial spirit, rich heritage, and boasts the most architecturally diverse residential street in Ohio. Norwalk’s historic city center features quaint shops and the nostalgic sidewalk life of a small town. Visitors may browse antique shops and boutiques, enjoy a meal at one of our Uptown eateries, or relax in one of two beautiful parks. Home to Summit Motorsports Park, Eagle Creek Golf Course, Firelands Museum, Norwalk Fabric Outlet, and Uptown’s historic Carnegie Library, Norwalk has something for everyone to do at their own pace. Memories are waiting for you in Norwalk.
