General Information about Fontanelle
Fontanelle is an unincorporated community in Washington County, Nebraska, United States. The site of repeated incursions by the neighboring Pawnee tribe, Fontanelle was an early Nebraska Territory boom town that rescinded in importance after failing to secure a railroad connection in the late 1800s. The 1860 Federal Census showed the town having dozens of residents, including farmers, carpenters, blacksmiths, clergymen, lawyers, and other professions. The town dwindled from a population of 500 to a few dozen after an early university left in the 1870s.
An misspelling of the name of Logan Fontenelle, this town was named in honor of the Omaha Tribe leader who died near here. The town was originally organized by the Nebraska Colonization Company, which in turn was organized in Quincy, Illinois in 1854. The goal of founding the town was to develop "a literary institution which shall be known as the Nebraska University." In spring 1855 a prospecting party chose the site about twelve miles from the present city of Fremont.
