Founded in 1833, Fairburn is a small city in Fulton County, Georgia. It is a thriving community for both business and family, situated about 15 minutes away from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
The location where Fairburn currently stands is believed to have been settled around 1830. At its founding in 1833, it was named Cartersville. But the name was changed to Berryville a year later. The charter for the town, whose present name was thought to have been influenced by a town of the same name in York, England, was enacted in 1854 by the state legislature.
Its rise to prominence was fueled by the Atlanta & West Point Railroad that passed through the town. The railroad was originally planned to pass through the-then Campbell County seat, Campbellton, but it was rejected because of anticipated noise. However, Fairburn put up with the inconvenience and benefited in rapid growth, with the railroad contributing to propel it to becoming the county seat of Campbell County in 1871.
