Smithsonian Magazine recognizes Fairfield


OTTUMWA — Fairfield has gotten more attention than most towns its size, and now Smithsonian Magazine has taken notice.

Fairfield was named one of the 20 Best Small Towns to Visit. Much of the magazine's mini-feature on the town is rooted in discussion of the impact Maharishi University of Management has had on the town. But other aspects, like the Sondheim Center and KRUU, a hyper-local radio station, also feature.

Fairfield ranked No. 7 on the list, beating better known locations like Los Alamos, NM, and Provincetown, Mass.
