Fatehabad was created as a separate district from Hisar and Tohana was included in the part that went to Fatehabad.
The area around Tohana used to be a desert land until the Bhakhra Nangal sub-branch canal brought a source of irrigation for the town and neighboring villages. After this, Tohana developed into a major agricultural hub. Credit for the transformation goes to Rai bahadur Kanwar Sen Gupta, who was born in 1899 in Tohana.
