Foster was platted April 25, 1893 on land donated by William R. Foster, an early settler. At one time the town had a post office, blacksmith shop, railroad depot, two stores, a stockyard, a threshing machine, a grain elevator and a sawmill. Currently it consists of a few private residences, a couple of small shops and a motel.
A post office was established at Foster in 1883, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1905.
Foster is located just north of U.S. Route 136 about 5 miles (8.0 km) west of Covington and about 3 miles (4.8 km) east of the Indiana-Illinois border. The Vermilion Valley Railroad (originally the New York Central Railroad) passes through Fowler, and the north fork of Spring Creek flows along its western edge.
