Fairland is a town in Shelby County, Indiana, United States. The population was 1,276 at the 2000 census, at which time it was a census-designated place (CDP).



Fairland is located at 39°35′20″N 85°51′43″W / 39.58889°N 85.86194°W / 39.58889; -85.86194 (39.588962, -85.861885).[3]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP had a total area of 3.5 square miles (9.0 km²), of which, 3.5 square miles (9.0 km²) of it was land and 0.04 square miles (0.1 km²) of it (0.57%) was water.


The community, located about five miles (8 km) northwest of Shelbyville, was incorporated as a town on June 9, 1866, but for some undetermined reason, the town board stopped meeting, and town government came to a halt sometime after July 1883.

On August 16, 2008, for the first time in 125 years, a three-member Fairland Town Board and a town clerk-treasurer conducted official business. Shelby County Councilwoman Tami Grubbs administered the oath of office to board members Rick Daily, John Hanson and Jeremy Creech, along with Clerk-Treasurer Chris Brinson, who immediately set about the task of organization, which included electing board officials. The board elected Daily as board president, Hanson as vice president and Creech as secretary.[4] Indiana law mandates that all municipalities with populations under 2,000 people are towns.[5]


As of the census[1] of 2000, there were 1,276 people, 462 households, and 369 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 367.7 people per square mile (142.0/km²). There were 481 housing units at an average density of 138.6/sq mi (53.5/km²). The racial makeup of the CDP was 97.88% White, 0.78% Native American, 0.31% Asian, 0.31% from other races, and 0.71% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 0.78% of the population.
