The City of Fairhope was founded in 1894 as a utopian single tax colony. It was established by the "Fairhope Industrial Association" on the site of the former City of Alabama. Since it was a model community based on the common ownership of land, and was created with a "fair hope of success", it was christened "Fairhope" by the Midwesterners. The School for Organic Education was established in the city in 1907 by educator Marietta Johnson. Fairhope was incorporated in 1908. In the early 1900s, the city became a popular wintering spot for intellectuals and artists.
Fairhope is unique in many ways; it has a small-town appearance, has outstanding public service, low in crime, has relatively mild winters, hot summers, and has all of 11 square miles in its city. Its close proximity to the beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach makes for a great time with family and out of town visitors. There are several golf courses in our area, parks, an annual Arts and Crafts Festival and Mardi Gras parades.
There are many great neighborhoods in the Fairhope community.
