The first settlers to Fergus were freed slaves who formed the Pierpoint Settlement, named after their leader, Richard Pierpoint. In 1833 Little Falls was established by Adam Fergusson and James Webster, who would supervise the town's development. The first house of this predominantly Scottish community was erected in 1833. A hotel was built in 1834 and a sawmill, grist mill, church and school followed in 1835.
