Although Fort Morgan's best-known citizen lived here only a few years, jazz great Glenn Miller considered the town his home. The bandleader spent his high school years in Fort Morgan, playing trombone in the school band. Fort Morgan was originally the site of a military camp established to protect travelers on the Overland Trail. The fort, named after a colonel, was later constructed and manned by former Confederates released from prison to fight Indians. In 1883, Abner S. Baker laid out a town site and began construction of a canal to irrigate some 25,000 acres. Baker finagled a depot by "persuading" railroad officials with deeds. Fort Morgan was incorporated in 1887 and became seat of a new county. In addition to farms producing a variety of crops, Morgan County is home to beef ranches and sheep and dairy farms. During WWII, Fort Morgan's armory housed German POWs, who worked on surrounding farms.
