Fairland was founded in 1889 in Oklahoma Indian Territory, Cherokee Nation. The town was laid out along the tracks of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway (Frisco), which was built from Missouri to Vinita in 1871. The original plat encompassed 225 acres. Some residences and businesses were moved from the soon-to-be defunct town of Prairie City, which lay a few miles further east, near Grand River.
