The idea of a postcard book illustrating the history of Fenton was conceived as a fitting way to celebrate Fenton's 175th anniversary in 2009. Clark Dibble came to the area in 1834 and called his settlement Dibbleville. Dibble later sold his share in the community to William Fenton and Robert Leroy, but the historical district has since been called Dibbleville and is still known as such today. Fenton boasts many historical homes, churches, and businesses. Fenton was home to the first aviation school in Michigan and was the headquarters for the Portland Cement Company. Andrew Jackson Phillips built his factory in Fenton, as well as four homes along Shiawassee Avenue. Phillips left his office to the city for use as a library.
