Saddlebrook is built on the former Behm homestead. The land was homesteaded in the late 19th century by the Behm family and later divided between the original owners two sons. The western portion of the land was eventually bought by another family and was used as a vacation retreat. Among other things they built the Lake Lodge/House. They sold the land in the early 1990's to the developers of Saddlebrook Farms. The eastern part of the land remained in the Behm family until Fremont township purchased it in the early 2000s. It had a stipulation that it would remain open land and was developed into Behm Park.
