The Folmont Community was first begun in the early 1970's under the control of the Wilderness Club. The Community grew slowly in those early years, but has grown significantly in the last ten years. As of 2013, there were 102 permanent homes in Folmont. Building plans have been submitted for additional homes.
Construction is in various stages of completion on six new homes. As of February 2013, The Architectural Committee has received one additional housing starts for the 2013 building season. There are 229 property owners in the Folmont Community. Lots continue to be cleared and new full time residents and new property owners continue to invest in Folmont.

On April 20, 2011, The Board hosted Mr. Ian MaClean and his wife at Fort Duart in Folmont. Ian is the descendent of the man who constructed the fort in 1758. You might know that Fort Duart is one of the last remaining earthen redoubts from the French and Indian War. Fort Duart and a remnant of the Forbes Trail are located in Folmont and are maintained by the FPOA. We are excited to join with Clan MaClean to help preserve the fort and the Forbes Trail. Our thanks to Peter Folen and a group of historians and reenactors who provided the MaCleans with a thorough understanding of the significance of the fort. A visit by the head of the MaClean Clan from Scotland is scheduled for September 22 of 2013. This effort continues and the proceeds of the chicken Bar BQ and donations (About $1000) have added to our efforts to place the fort on the National Registry of Historic Properties.
