Adams County is made of many quaint towns and beautiful countryside. Each place has a story - a story of the people who settled, of the sustaining industries, and often, how the famous Civil War Battle of Gettysburg raged through the streets. Fairfield is one of those special places. Here you will learn of the beginnings of this charming little town, how it grew, how it engaged as soldiers marched through the streets. When you are done, make plans to enjoy a stay or a meal in this charming town, or take in the Pippenfest in September.
