Fairfield Civic Center 50th Anniversary

June 05, 2021

The City of Fairfield has released a documentary in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Civic Center Complex.

The Vacaville Heritage Council was pleased to be able to assist the City of Fairfield with photos, articles, and other information for this commemorative video.

The Civic Center Complex is the result of former City Manager B. Gale Wilson’s vision for the future. The project was awarded to Robert Hawley after Fairfield conducted a statewide competition that garnered 40 entries.

The documentary recounts the events leading up to the construction and through the dedication of City Hall. It also features key people involved in the project, including former Waterman Park residents, the original architect, city staff, and local historians.
