Lucas Sullivant from Virginia was the first landowner of the area. As a surveyor, he learned much about the land in the area. Realizing a good mill site was on his own land, he gave John Kerr 50 acres for building a mill in 1807. This mill was the beginning of Fredericktown. The town was laid out by Kerr on 11 November 1807. He then purchased more of the surrounding land. William Farquar surveyed and platted the land. He named it Frederick in honor os his home town of Frederick, Maryland. On March 22, 1850, the village was incorporated.
