A glimpse of Fairmount in 1907

This book holds descriptions, strictly in rhyme,
Rich accounts of old Fairmount's earliest times.
Filled with all the old names that everyone knew,
You will learn where they worked, and how they all grew.
Each enterprise bustled back in that day,
Hotels, food, and drug stores, and places to pray.
There were banks, there were lawyers and good doctors too.
Fairmount had everything needed to thrive,
and four major railroads to keep it alive.

NEW: PDF scanned from 1907 43-page document

In Fairmount there are attractive and economical real estate purchase options. The housing market here offers a wide range of attractive and affordable existing homes as well as the choice of new custom-home design packages.
