Emmet was founded in 1882 when the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad was extended to that point. It was named after Irish nationalist Robert Emmet.
Like much of Holt County, the Emmet area is well suited for production of wild hay. Early settlers cut it as a cash crop; in the 1920s, the Emmet-Elkhorn Valley Hay Company was founded; its name was later abbreviated to the Emmet Hay Company. The community describes itself as the "Biggest Little Haytown in the World".
