Title The Fairview Fort - A Vital Part of Sanpete
Description With time and the march of progress, the old fort fell to make way for more modem structures. The buildings fell into disuse and decay or were torn down as the town took on a look much like that of other small towns throughout the country. The fort lives on today only in the writings of early settlers or their descendants who have preserved stories of their ancestors' lives. To history buffs, the fort is of interest as a part of early Utah, hut the average traveler down the city's main street is unaware that the block which now houses a car lot, homes, and cafe, was where the east wall of the fort of Fairview once stood. That fort, and the forts of all the other towns in the valley, were an integral part of the life of early Sanpete. It and the others served their purpose well in protecting the early settlers from Indian raids and allowing the settlements of the valley to take root and grow into what they have Ijeccme today.
