The county was created in 1884 and, until 1890, it included what would then become Park, Big Horn and Hot Springs counties. The namesake for the county was General John Charles Fremont. He was a surveyor and helped to explore the way to the Pacific Ocean in 1842. He, along with about 20 other men, were guided by Kit Carson and their Shoshone guide, Enos. More historical information may be found on this brief history page for the County. The boundaries have not changed since 1921.
