From its early beginnings in the 1850’s and through the decades, Fort Dodge has benefitted from many successful businesses, industries and manufacturers that served as the foundation of the local economy and were responsible for creating significant wealth, of which much was contributed back to the community to better our community and improve quality of life in the Fort Dodge area.
