Founded in 1894 as a model cooperative colony, Fairhope had a name before it was a place because its settlers believed their unique venture would have a fair hope of success. Its cornerstone was the law of equal freedom for all. During the Jazz Age, flappers and wealthy visitors from metropolitan centers of Chicago and New York abounded during the post-war boom.

They flocked to the beautiful resort spot on Mobile Bay, an entertainment center with dance and yacht clubs and a waterfront casino. The towns individualistic roots also attracted famous idealists, intellectuals, and social critics of the day, as well as mavericks, Communists, and some just plain kooks.
