Introduction to Fenton, Michigan
Fenton was initially named Dibbleville after the first European settler in the area, Clark Dibble. There is a curious history behind the renaming of the city as Fenton. Supposedly it was the result of an 1837 card game involving two men, William M. Fenton and Robert LeRoy. The area was incorporated as a village in 1863 and was re-incorporated as a city in 1964.
