Greetings! Welcome to the Fairfax Historical Society Homepage!

A Fund Raiser
The Fairfax Historical Society is offering to do a deed research of your home. A Century Award plaque will be presented if evidence shows it was built more than one hundred years ago and the year will be added to the plaque if verified by the research.

A monetary donation is requested to raise money for repairs and maintenance to the building and the displays at the museum on Main Street.

Please contact S.Sweet at or S.Rainville at for more information.

Good Afternoon Everyone!

A couple of quick notes:

The Fairfax Historical Society will be meeting this Sunday October 30th at 7pm at the Fairfax Community Library. We will be discussing our table at the Holiday Showcase and Craft Fair on Saturday November 19th at BFA-Fairfax. We will also do a museum update, among other things. At the end of the meeting we will have a "Remember When" session where we will discuss some of Fairfax's history. If you want to share a story, please do. If you know of someone that is interested in Fairfax's history or history in general, please invite them along! See you Sunday!

Come see us at the Fairfax Craft Show, November 19th, 2016 from 9am-3pm. We will be selling Fairfax Covered Bridte T-Shirts, historic maps, greeting cards, raffling off passes to the Fairbanks Museum and Smuggs, and holding a silent auction of Tony Stone's quilts and a Nicole Vance original painting of the Maple Street Covered Bridge. You won't want to miss it!
