There are several crumbling buildings but the highlight is the old school house. On weekends there is usually a docent who can explain the fascinating history of railroads in Southern Arizona in the 19th century. From Fairbank you could take a train to El Paso, Tucson, Nogales, Bisbee and all the other towns of the time. Some 20 trains a day.
It is a quiet place along the San Pedro River - where Coronado and his fellow conquistadors rode almost 500 years ago. With the river flowing you can usually see lots of birds if you are a bit patient.
If you go in the summer months, visit early as it can be very hot!
