History[edit]

Fischer was founded in 1853 by Hermann and Otto Fischer, German immigrants. They established a self-sufficient rural community based on agriculture and ranching, economic activities that continue in the area. The center of the community is near the 1860s house of Otto Fischer, now a bed and breakfast, and is centered around the Fischer Store and post office. One of the surviving early 20th-century buildings in town includes an old nine-pin bowling alley whose pins are still set by hand.[3] The core of the village, as well as its surrounding landscape and transportation patterns, were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017 as the Fischer Historic District.
