For governmental purposes, the year 1869 was a notable one for the community of Fort Dodge.

Although the town had existed since about 1853, it was chartered in September 1869.

“We officially became a city,” City Councilman Dave Flattery said.

That official charter came 150 years ago, and city leaders want to mark that anniversary.

The City Council took an initial step toward doing that on Monday by adopting two 150th anniversary logos. Both of them feature the iconic clock tower of the Webster County Courthouse.

 

The logos will appear on shirts, medallions and other commemorative items.

They were approved unanimously by the council without discussion.

Flattery said future events will be planned to mark the anniversary.

“We’d like to do something with the Downtown Country Jam,” Flattery said.

He said the concert will be in September, 150 years to the month after the charter was issued.
