Like many other cities in metro Atlanta, Fairburn’s origin can be traced back to the railroads. In 1871, the city of Campbellton refused to let the Atlanta & West Point Railroad to pass through their town due to noise so it instead ran through this city. As it grew, Campbellton faded away. Located in Campbell County originally, this city suffered some rough times during the Great Depression. When the Campbell County government went bankrupt, the city was absorbed into Fulton County.
