The process of modern urbanization in Ethiopia began to take shape since the later part of the nineteenth century. The territorial expansion of emperor Menelik r. 1889 1913 political stability and effective centralization and bureaucratization of government brought relative acceleration of the pace of urbanization in Ethiopia the improvement of the system of transportation and communication are identified as factors that contributed to this new phase of urban development. Central government expansion to the south led to the appearance of garrison centers which gradually developed to small-sized urban center or Katama. The garrison were established either on already existing settlements or on fresh sites and also physically they were situated on hill tops. Consequently Limmu Genet town was founded on the former Limmu Ennarya states territory as a result of the territorial expansion of the central government and system of administration. Although the history of the town and its people trace many year back to the present no historical study has been conducted on. Therefore the aim of this study is to explore the history of Limmu Genet town from its foundation up to present.
