Fairview, WV

  • 407 Main St Fairview, WV 26570

Fairview is a small community with a population of 408 as of the 2010 census. 

The History:

It’s been said that Fairview got its name quite literally. As the story goes, those who moved to the region stumbled upon beautiful hills and mountains and trees. They decided to settle there simply because of the fair view. (In this instance, fair means pretty and pleasing - fairly accurate if I do say so myself.)

Noteworthy natives include sculptor Maggie McCurdy, Brigadier WWI general and Governor of the Panama Canal Zone Jay Johnson Morrow and football coach Fielding H. Yost.

Celebrating the 4th of July since 1976!
