Named after the railroad tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt, the Fayette County treasure celebrated its centennial in 2005. As it is written in the town's 100th anniversary book, "There is something about small towns where everyone knows you by name -- where you spend your time in school, play, work and church -- those memories will always be a major part of those who have resided in the community known as Vanderbilt."
