About Fairview, TX

The picturesque town of Fairview, incorporated in 1958, is home to a population of almost 9,000. The inviting small-town community is known for its large homes on expansive lots and equestrian estates, as well as its extensive proliferation of open spaces, including its scenic rolling hills, creeks, and woodlands.

Fairview was incorporated in 1958 when a petition with over 30 signatures requested an incorporation election for Fairview. On May 7, 1958, the election was held in the Fairview Grocery. The support for incorporation was almost unanimous. On May 12, 1958, the town's order for incorporation was signed by Jude Button.
