The city of Fairview is on low-lying land adjacent to the Columbia river, largely wetlands and sloughs. The area was originally home to the Clackamas, Multnomah and other indigenous peoples. Settlers arrived in the mid-1800s and established a farming community, which was incorporated as a city in 1908.
