Stop in this library! In one room is the history of the relationship between Manjiro, the first Japanese person to live in the United State who lived in Fairhaven. The library has interesting architecture on its three floors and stained glass windows along with sculptures. Good quick visit

How lucky Fairhave was to have had a benefactor who gave the town beautiful and unique buildings. He not only gave the buildings he gave character to the town itself. Great spots of beauty there..a lovely place to live or visit with many diverse ethnic groupings, including Yankee, Norwegian, Portugese, and French.. This library is especially beautiful, well maintained and... More

This library is rich in history and appearance. It was built by Fairhaven's own Henry Huttleston Rogers and the architecture is so beautifult to behold inside and out. There are many artifacts from the past around the library. On the first floor are 2 framed hand written speeches by Henry's good friend Mark Twain for the opening of the Town... More

This is a beautiful historical building. Employees take pride in working in such a beautiful building. It's a must to visit when in town. Learn the history of our town.

This is my sweet town library so I'm entirely biased. But it is gorgeous, and I recommend it to anyone, townie or traveler. We're used to seeing visitors with their mouths agape when they come inside so you'll feel at home. The staff are knowledgeable and sharp (and when they know you, downright sassy, which I love). Come see.

Historic landmark donated to the town by Henry Huttleston Rogers, oil magnate. Just one of 7 buildings he donated. Check out the Unitarian Church and Town Hall also. There is a visitors center nearby with loads of info. The Center of the town where these buildings are located is lovely.

If you enjoy architecture and older buildings this is a gem inside and out. There are many older buildings in this area and they also have guided walking tours in this area, may be seasonal, I am not sure.

Beautiful historical building, knowledgeable staff, great place to sit and read a book. The only thing I notice is the noise level is pretty high for a library. Is it not the norm any longer to be quiet and speak in hushed tones in a library?
