The county is named in honor of Robert Fulton, who developed the first commercially successful steamboat. It is known as the Land of 44 Lakes.

The old Tryon County courthouse, later the Montgomery County courthouse, became the Fulton County Courthouse, where it is now New York's oldest operating courthouse.

Shortly after the American Revolutionary War, the manufacture of gloves and leather became the area's primary industry. At one point, Johnstown and Gloversville were known as the world's Glove and Leather capital. Many residents of Fulton County can trace their ancestry to the glove and leather trades. Today few glovers, tanners and leather dressers remain in the area.
