Hunts Corners (also Hunt's Corners or Moorehead[2]) is an unincorporated community in southeastern Lyme Township, Huron County, Ohio, United States. It lies at the intersection of State Route 547 and Sand Hill Road, southeast of Bellevue and southwest of the city of Norwalk, the county seat of Huron County.[3] Its elevation is 768 feet (234 m), and it is located at 41°13′39″N 82°45′27″W / 41.22750°N 82.75750°W / 41.22750; -82.75750 (41.2275540, -82.7574062).[2]

Hunts Corners is among Huron County's oldest communities. Founded by Levi Sutton, a Virginian, the community was established as the "Sutton Settlement" in 1811,[4] six years before the first settlers arrived in Norwalk.[5]

In 1993, Hunts Corners was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a historic district, primarily because of its role in the exploration and settlement of the region.[1]
