Fenton is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan that lies mostly in Genesee County, with small portions in neighboring Oakland County and Livingston County.
It was first established in 1834 and was originally named Dibbleville after Clark Dibble, one of the first settlers. It was platted in 1837 as Fentonville by William M. Fenton who would later become lieutenant-governor of Michigan. When the settlement was incorporated as a village in 1863 the name Fenton was used. The settlement’s post office used the name Fentonville from 1837 until 1886, when it adopted the current name.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 7.00 square miles of which 6.68 square miles is land and 0.32 square miles is water. Most of the city is in Genesee County. The city has also annexed approximately 56 acres in Livingston County. Approximately 1.5 acres was formerly used as the city dump. The Tipsico Lake Project is a brownfield redevelopment project to restore the land and surrounding area. Small portions of the city also extend into Oakland County and Livingston County.
The municipality operates its own water system. Fenton includes several historic buildings. It was home to the first aviation school in Michigan and the A.J. Phillips Fenton Museum.
