Chester A. Arthur 

 

Birthplace of 21st President

 

Although the exact location is debated, Chester A. Arthur was born on Oct. 5, 1829 in Fairfield.  He became a New York lawyer 

and politician and was elected Vice-President in 1880. Upon the assassination of James Garfield, Arthur became President on Sept.

10, 1881.  His administration was distinguished by the creation of the U. S. Civil Service, better relations with Central and South

America, and the revival of the U.S. Navy.  Arthur died Nov. 18, 1886.  The State-Owned Historic Site is 5 miles northwest from

here.
