Fairview is a nice town of 1300 (up 10% since 2000) located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 89 and Utah Highway 31, in Sanpete County in Central Utah. Fairview was established in 1850 by Warren P. Brady and Jehu Cox, settlers from nearby Mount Pleasant who petitioned Brigham Young for permission to colonize a new town about 17 miles north. Young said if they found water enough to support 30 families then they could start the colony. They founded the town near the confluence of the San Pitch River and Cottonwood Creek and called it North Bend. The town's name later changed to Fairview because of the excellent view to the south that afforded a view all the way down to Manti 30 miles south. Although many of the townspeople came from Mount Pleasant a rivalry developed between the two towns. This section of Utah is frequently called "Little Denmark" because of the important influence Scandinavian settlers have had on the development of towns in the area. The Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad came to Fairview in the 1890s. Fairview has a nice little historic district with several buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. There are four individual locations in Fairview listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
