Fairmont's CemeterieseBook - 2007
Founded in 1820 by Boaz Fleming, Fairmont, West Virginia, is located midway between Morgantown and Clarksburg. It is the seat of Marion County, which was formed in 1842 from Harrison and Monongalia Counties. During its heyday in the early 20th century, Fairmont was home to 100 millionaires who prospered in the town largely because of the coal fields, which were connected to the Eastern Seaboard markets by the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Today Fairmont is undergoing a renaissance and looks forward to continued growth while retaining its unique history.
