A Visit to Fairview Christian Church and Cemetery – Washington County

Fairview Christian is a small, country church with a beautiful cemetery.  It is located at the northernmost point of Washington County, at the Anderson County line.  Located on a narrow road, the easiest route is to take exit 48 off the Bluegrass Parkway, head north, and then take an almost immediate left onto Hwy 1291.  Follow that road until you come to Hwy 1387 and take a left.  The church and cemetery on the left.  Several of my Hill relatives are buried here.  Today I share with you a few of the gravestones we photographed.  It was a cloudy day but the pictures are fairly good.  To see the final resting place of five Civil War soldiers buried here click here.
