About FremontFremont, established in 1856, was named for Gen. John C. Frémont, then a presidential candidate. The town attracted settlers by offering free land, free timber for cabins and a year's supply of firewood. Growth and prosperity continued unabated and with the coming of the great westward expansion, Fremont became a stagecoach depot. In 1866 the Union Pacific Railroad arrived.
