About Fairview Heights
The City of Fairview Heights is known as Southwestern Illinois’ “Crossroads of Prosperity.” Just a few minutes from Downtown St. Louis, Scott Air Force Base and a number of area attractions, Fairview Heights is a hub for retail activity, commerce, tourism and quality living. Owners of property in our city enjoy the advantage of not having to pay any municipal real estate tax as our retail base is so broad, it provides sufficient funds to operate a first-class municipality with a full range of services for all ages. Having grown from a handful of homes and lots of farmland in the 1960’s to the modern community we are today, Fairview Heights is continuing to move ahead as exemplified by the late 1998 opening of the U.S.
So you’ll never miss out.
