Fairview: Quaint, Rustic, and Rural
Home to Bowie Nature Park
CITY OF FAIRVIEW & BOWIE NATURE PARK
Fairview is located in the northwest region of Williamson County. In the 1950s the entire Nashville metro area began to grow rapidly, including Fairview. This prompted community leaders to incorporate the city in 1959. Located at Highway 100 and Deer Ridge Rd., Fairview’s Historic Village is home to several historical buildings including the Triangle School, Boone Street Medical Clinic, and Jingo Post Office.
