A message from Fairfield's Mayor Robert R. Stanley

We’re glad you’ve chosen to visit Fairfield Borough’s web site. We are a small community – rich in history – with approximately 200 homes, some of which date to the 18th century and many to the 19th century.  About 500 citizens call Fairfield home. Nestled in a valley with abundant green space, the community is peaceful and quiet, yet the surrounding area affords opportunities for many recreational activities including golfing, skiing, horseback riding, exploring nature preserves, and hiking on the Appalachian Trail.  We are home to several restaurants, and lodging is available in the newly renovated and historic Mansion House 1757 - a boutique inn, tavern, and restaurant. Please come and visit us in our beautiful village.
