History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Settlement began around 1805.

The town was established in 1830 as the "Town of Depeau" from the Towns of De Kalb and Edwards. The town changed its name to Hermon, after a post office in the town, in 1834 due to the presence of another location named after Francis Depeau. In 1852, Hermon arrived at its current dimensions after losing a small part from its southeast corner to the Town of Edwards.

The community of Hermon set itself off from the town in 1887 by incorporating as a village.
