    Fairview Texas Highway 5 overpass
    "The overpass has a wicked turn going into it and out of it, is extremely narrow, and before they removed the railroad, was the end of the line for many a semi trailer !" - Mike Price, January 2008 photo
    History on a Pinhead

    The entry for Collin County’s Fairview (one of 14 communities in Texas that share that name) in the Handbook of Texas doesn’t mention an early history – just population figures. The entry begins in the “late 1960s” when the town’s population doubled from 175 (1960) to 325 (1970). For the 1990 census, the town reported 1,554 residents, which increased by 2000 to 2,644.
