Fairfax (pop. 638) is located on Hwy 59 in the southeastern quadrant of Atchison County.  Fairfax is home to the county's major health facility, Community Hospital - Fairfax, which moved to its new location September 2010.  Charming and friendly, Fairfax has a wonderful city park in the center of town where the Fairfax Fair takes place each year.

Pertinent news can be found each week in The Fairfax Forum.  The Fairfax R-III School District (K-12), home of the Bulldogs, cooperates with Tarkio as the East Atchison Wolves for football and baseball.  Active groups in Fairfax include the Fairfax Kiwanis Club and the Fairfax Optimist Club.
