Quality of Life

Fairburn has grown from a sleepy town of 4,000 residents to a bustling city of almost 14,000 citizens in the last ten years.  In spite of this phenomenal growth we have never lost our friendly small town charm and our sense of family and community.  Fairburn maintains a traditional small town atmosphere coupled with the sophisticated advantages of a nearby metropolitan area.

We are proud of our community’s heritage, achievements and its potential for the future. We believe Fairburn is a special place - an ideal small city - large enough to provide excellent service but small enough to know and care about its citizens and members of our business community.


The median price for homes in Fairburn is $148,000. 


Fairburn is home to GMC Community College, Brenau University and  Landmark Christian School, known for its stellar college preparatory curriculum. The city is also served by the Fulton County School System.
