 Fairhaven is a waterfront town, with one shore facing one of the busier fishing ports in the country, 
the other shore facing a pristine waterfront with no development. 
Fairhaven is blessed with a great deal of undeveloped land by the shore. Vast vistas of tree lines and beach. 
Most of Little Bay and a large portion of West Island are sanctuary. 
I have had the pleasure to be a Fairhaven resident for thirty some odd years now, and have loved the waters of Buzzards Bay, and the town which feels so much like home.

 

      

Joshua Slocum and John Cooke memorials

 

The town is also host to a beautiful center, which boasts many civic buildings from the turn of the century. 
These magnificent buildings were constructed by Henry Huttleston Rogers at the turn of the century.
