Find out more about the history of your community

How did our community become the Town of Fort Branch when it began as a series of forts in 1811? The people living in these forts gradually built and expanded them as they settled the area. The growing community gave itself several names during its early years but chose Fort Branch in honor of the river branch that sustained it. Today, the river branch still supports our water system and our community is home to more than 2,500 people and 1,000 neighbors. Visitors are always welcome, too!
