History

The municipality of Fernelmont was officially created on 3 January 1977, through the fusion of ten rural municipalities. It was named Fernelmont (Ash Tree Mountain) after a 13th-century castle which was positioned more or less at the centre of the newly created municipality. None of the villages comprising the municipality has ever been called Fernelmont, and the Maison Communale (town hall) is in Noville-les-Bois.
