From the Morgan County Historical Marker: “One of the older communities in Morgan County, Fairplay is identified on county maps as early as 1839. Fairplay did not have a railroad line in the community, but it appears to have developed on an old post road. Post office records from the 1880s identify the community as a village with about 40 inhabitants. In addition to a store and post office, Fairplay also had a cotton gin to serve adjacent farmers.”
