Created on April 19, 1851, from part of Bedford County and named for Robert Fulton, the inventor who pioneered in the use of the steamboat. McConnellsburg, the county seat, was named for Daniel McConnell who laid it out in 1786. It was incorporated as a borough on March 26, 1814.

Because the first settlers were trespassers, violence characterized the early years of the society in this area. Both Indians and proprietary officials harried them. The area that became the county was included in the 1754 Albany Purchase from the Indians. The Great and Little Coves, which make up most of the county, lay along the Forbes Road and that brought an early prosperity. Gristmills and tanneries were successful. But the Main Line Canal and the Pennsylvania Railroad route bypassed Fulton and isolation resulted. Fulton never established railroad contact with outside markets and was a remote area until the Pennsylvania Turnpike appeared in 1940. The timber industry was strong until about 1930. Much of the county is now held as state forests, parks, and game lands. Thirty-six percent of the area is farmed, although agricultural cash receipts are relatively low. Manufacturing, especially of hydraulic equipment, employs many, but others commute to jobs outside Fulton.
