This is the original city cemetery for Eufaula and is listed on the Alabama Historical Cemetery Register as Old Fairview Cemetery. The other \"Fairview\" listed on this website is the new Fairview Annex. \n\nAmid the marble and granite markers on this beautiful site, are reflections of Eufaula and Alabama’s proud heritage. Established in the 1830s, Fairview stands today as a monument to the people who built Alabama. Inside its gates rest governors, lieutenant governors, judges, university presidents, industrialists, U.S. and Alabama Senators and Representatives. Here too lie the men in Gray. Over 350 Confederates Soldiers and Sailors, from General to Private, are buried throughout the cemetery. A Confederate Unknown section is near the bluff side. Old Fairview is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Alabama Historic Cemetery Register.\n\nOld Fairview-Arboretum\nFairview’s collection of wonderful statuary, grave emblems and monuments is one of the largest varieties found in the State of Alabama. This entrance is an arboretum filled with huge azaleas, dogwoods, camellias, and Japanese maple trees. The iron fence is from Eufaula’s Union Female College founded in 1854. In the arboretum’s center stands a 1880s fountain. Throughout these cedar-scented grounds are numerous other reminders of each historic era. Fairview’s beautiful acres provide a Victorian-park like setting, where its magnificent funerary art allows the visitor to step back into the past–it is Eufaula’s special outside museum.\n\nNote 4-1: Old Fairview is located in the Seth-Lore Historic District, NRHP Register, NRIS#86001534, record number 403485, property number 943, page number 240, entered August 14, 1986.\n\nNote 4-2: Old Fairview is property number 32, as listed on the Alabama Historic Cemetery Register, dated October 17, 2012.
