Welcome to Fairview ...

Although we found mention of Fairview during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Fairview was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..

We've added Fairview to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Fairview, please Contact Us.


The location of Fairview has been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (ie- the GNIS).<2>

Fairview is 3,110 feet [948 m] above sea level.<3> In other words, the elevation of Fairview is about ½ mile above sea level.

Time Zone: The area where we believe that Fairview might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time

We believe that Fairview would be found within the (828) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Fairview and then turned west". While Fairview could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Fairview as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Bird Creek to see Pete ... Bird Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.

Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.

Also keep in mind that Fairview could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Fairview - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Fairview) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Fairview. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Fairview

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Fairview. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 35.2812, Longitude: -83.6327     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Fairview have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
