Fairview Park History

Fairview Park was originally part of the Rockport Township and later the Rocky River hamlet, which was incorporated as a village in 1903. In the year 1910, the area was split into two parts - the northern part became Rocky River and the southern part was called Goldwood. The Goldwood region underwent further subdivisions with parts of the land being named "Fairview" and "Parkview". In 1940, the region called Fairview was rechristened "Fairview Park". This name was probably influenced by the community’s proximity to Cleveland Metropolitan Park. The major part of the development of Fairview Park took place after World War II with the construction of roads and shopping centers.
