The city of Fremont, Nebraska, has a proud history beginning with its founding in 1856. Wagon trails that once went through the town were soon transformed into railroads, contributing to the industrialization of the city before the turn of the century.

Today, Fremont is a city of 24,000 people. Although the population has remained relatively stable over the past 30 years, the economy has continued to grow. The City of Fremont, the Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Fremont Chamber Industrial Foundation have been actively promoting growth and development during the last decade. Although the 1980s were dominated by a recession, Fremont has had success.
