History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

Fairburn is located along a railroad line and was the county seat of Campbell County starting in 1870, being so designated after the original seat of Campbellton refused to allow the Atlanta & West Point Railroad line through on account of the anticipated noise, then faded away as Fairburn grew. The government of Campbell County went bankrupt in 1931 during the Great Depression and, along with Milton County to the north, was absorbed into Fulton County when 1932 began.
