Introduction to Fremont, Ohio

Fremont, Ohio, in Sandusky county, is 31 miles SE of Toledo, Ohio.

Fremont History

The area was established in the year 1817 under the name of the "Lower Sandusky" town. However, this naming resulted in major confusion for postal delivery as there were two other places in Ohio by the name of "Sandusky" and "Upper Sandusky." In 1849, the name was changed to Fremont in honor of the explorer and presidential candidate, John C. Fremont. The National Arbor Day Foundation has designated the city of Fremont as a "Tree City USA." Among the former residents of Freemont was the 19th president of the United States, Rutherford B. Hayes.
