Fulton County is named after the inventor of the steamboat, Robert Fulton. The county was formed in 1850. In the 1860s, many Fulton County residents served in both the Union and Confederate regiments in the Civil War.
The county's 435 square miles are mostly rural mountains and valleys.

The natural resources are primarily timber and limestone. Agriculture and manufacturing are the major employers, producing aerial platform lifts and portable stone crushers among other things.
