In the 1850s, the railroad reached and terminated in Fenton, making this village an important commercial and transportation center. Wagon trips came down from Flint, Saginaw, and the north, since Fenton was the farthest a railroad had ever reached in this part of the State. To facilitate shipping, a platted road was built between Flint and Fenton. Today, the downtown area retains much of its historical look while at the same time including a town square shopping nearby. The Shiawassee River also flows over a dam through the park in the center of town. The park is overlooked by City Hall and includes an old-fashioned gazebo and walkway by the river.
