Hume Township is a civil township of Huron County in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the township population was 801. The township is named after the first white settler in the area, Walter Hume, who arrived and built the first house in the 1850s. He also opened a hotel at the mouth of the Pinnebog River, which was probably the first such structure in this part of the county. Township government was organized in 1860, with the election being held at Hume's store and with Hume being elected the first supervisor. The land was once covered by stands of pine trees, which were long ago cleared and sent to saw mills at Port Crescent on the mouth of the Pinnebog River. The Port Huron Fire of 1871 and Thumb Fire of 1881 also destroyed much remaining timber land.[3][4]
