Fairview Cemetery is located at Main St S (Hwy 25) and Cobblehill Rd, two blocks south of Mill St (Hwy 7).

In 1879, Acton Council appointed a committee to study proposals about replacing the small burying ground by Knox Presbyterian church with a stylish new park-like cemetery. Over the next few years, a bitter fight ensued over suggested locations as different groups got involved. After much back and forth, 19 acres were acquired in the south-west corner of Acton and in 1886 the site was finally dedicated as a cemetery. The body of George Steel Sr was laid to rest as its first interment. Acton Council set up rules for the management of the new cemetery, which had been named Fairvew, and proceeded to close the old burying grounds at Knox.
