Some of the old buildings in the center of the ghost town are still standing though because they are not sound, we couldn't go in. You can only enter the schoolhouse, which has been turned into the visitor center and gift shop. The cemetery was interesting, eerily peaceful because it's located at the top of a hill. We trekked all the way to the site of the old mill and found the brick foundations. Overall, you'll have to use some imagination to picture what life was like in Fairbank in its heyday. I thought there would be more to see, but I guess this is what a real ghost town is like (and not some Hollywood ghost town). Still, it's an interesting side trip to make if you have the time for some real history.
