History[change | change source]

"…In 1882 Dickey County was a wild, unbroken prairie, with not a foot of land occupied or a sod turned. Now, i don't believe there is a foot of land in the county that is not owned, and most of it by actual settlers."

Fullerton was founded in 1888.

The Carroll House is a registered national historical site in Fullerton.
