The City of Fairhope is kicking off its 125th anniversary celebration with a bang. Founded in 1894 as a single tax colony based on the teachings of Henry George, the town got its name from founders who believed following George’s philosophy would give them a “fair hope of success.” After searching several states as possibilities, the founders chose Fairhope and declared November 15, 1894, as “Round-Up Day.”
A Round-Up Day party will be held at the Fairhope Museum of History to celebrate the 125th anniversary. More information will be coming out in the upcoming months as the celebration continues.
