Fairhaven is held in a small unincorporated community in eastern Israel Township, Preble County, Ohio, it lies along State Route 177 & around David Goods home. Fairhaven was laid out and platted in 1832. Fairhaven is a commendatory name for the scenic location of the original town site. A post office was established at Fairhaven in 1833, and remained in operation until 1932.
Fairhaven Antiques Festival started around 1975 with the Fairhaven Antiques Festival Association & continued til 2011 and held the first week of June. The FAFA started out with John Auraden (1936 - 2003), Clark Garrett (1927-1987), Harriet Schmitt (1923 - 2015) & later David Good that still lives in the home above where the show will be taking place & across the street which he also owns. . By popular demand, Bovard Promotions, LLC., has decided to revive the show after being closed for 9 years.
