Fairbank is situated SE of Oelwein and NE of Waterloo.
Wapsie Valley Community Schools services three other communities besides Fairbank. It is also one of only two schools in the state to partner with rural Amish communities for grades 1-4. The town has five churches, a post office, library, fire department, bank, ballpark, city hall, and more.
Homeowners will delight in the dairy country atmosphere, yet be able to shop the bigger cities nearby.
