Fairborn History

Fairborn was created when the two villages of Fairfield and Osborn were merged in 1950. This happened because the Great Dayton Flood of 1913 forced the people of Osborn to relocate near Fairfield. In 1949, the residents of both villages voted in the favor of a merger and in January 1950, the village of Fairborn was established. The name Fairborn was created from the names of the original villages.
