History of Fairfield, OH
Before the Europeans settled in Fairfield, the area was home to Native American tribes, including the Shawnee and the Miami. The Hopewell and Adena peoples created earthworks around the land, but sadly, many of those were destroyed by early European settlers.
In 1788, Judge John Cleves Symmes acquired the land that makes up Hamilton, Butler, and Warren counties in what is known as the Miami Purchase. The area continued to develop, as various hamlets formed, including one called Fair Play. This was home to Ohio’s first paper mill. That community and many of its buildings were destroyed by a flood in the late 1800s.
In the 1850s, the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton Railway extended into Fairfield, and acted as the catalyst for expansion.
The area remained an agricultural community for decades. In 1954 a group of residents petitioned for municipal incorporation. As a result, Fairfield became a statutory village the next year, beginning another period of growth and community development.
