Fenton is a town of fresh starts. In the 1970s, as part of an urban renewal plan, all buildings in downtown Fenton were leveled. Then, in 2007, a tornado ripped through Fenton, destroying buildings and homes causing Fenton to start all over again. The downtown area is now newly restored with buildings that pay tribute to the city's past, yet have all of the modern conveniences expected in the 21st century. When looking to make your own fresh start, Fenton is a great place to begin.
