No trip to Fairview is complete without a visit to Gloss Mountain State Park. This hidden gem in western Oklahoma entices visitors to climb to the peak to enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding countryside. Sometimes called “Glass Mountains,” the area has a high Selenite content that sparkles in the sun. The park is open from sunrise to sunset and offers plenty of trails and picnic areas.
Fairview is also home to the Major County Historical Society & Museum, where visitors can learn about the history and heritage of the area. The museum, which is located on 160 acres of farmland, will transport you back in time with two churches, a two-story hotel from the early 1900s, a one-room schoolhouse, railroad depot and locomotive, blacksmith shop and building with memorabilia from Fairview businesses in the 1890s.
For an overnight stay in a lovely atmosphere, visit Plymouth Valley Cellars. This 4.5-acre vineyard and winery offers Oklahoma wines, products and works by local artists, as well as a cottage in the vineyard, RV campsites and a four-bedroom home for larger groups.
