Historic Downtown Fairmont

Fairmont is a Small Town Main Street Community. The Small Town Main Street Program is overseen by the North Carolina Department of Commerce, Division of Community Assistance.

Fairmont's Downtown Commerical District was added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 7, 2010.

Plans are underway to improve the overall appearance of downtown beginning with the recent dedication of Heritage Park and Memory Lane and the opening of the Fairmont-South Robeson Heritage Center. Economic restructuring is also a major key to unlocking the potential of Fairmont's downtown and a business and development plan has been written to encourage new investors.
