Built in 1867 by Nathan C. Taliaferro, Fairview is a well-preserved and locally unique example of the Italian Villa Style, featuring a tower, overhanging eaves, and arched windows. Fairview, however, also features a complex roofline with its tower set at a 45-degree angle to the house, characteristics that make it a localized interpretation of the Italian Villa and an expression of Mr. Taliaferro’s personal wealth as a successful area businessman and farmer. After his death, the house passed through various owners, remaining in the Camden family for most of the 20th century.
