The history of the area had its start when Clark Dibble, one of the areas first settlers, established the settlement that would become Fenton. This was done in 1834 under the name Dibbleville. The community was officially platted as Fentonville in 1837. However, in 1863 when the community was incorporated as a village the name was shortened to simply Fenton. Growth was slow but steady and the community was incorporated as a city until 1964. By this time the downtown area was in decline and the community was spurred into rather drastic urban renewal plans. These efforts unfortunately required the leveling of the historic downtown buildings. The silver lining, is that the dilapidated buildings were replaced with beautiful modern buildings. The first and perhaps the most beautiful of these buildings was the Cornerstone building. The efforts also led to the renovation and expansion of the Old Fire Hall, which now serves as a beautiful fine dining establishment. These buildings now stand as a testament to the city’s devotion to it’s downtown area.
