Fanlew began as a railway distribution center of the Florida Central Railroad and later the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. The community served the sawmills and turpentine stills once in the area, with supplies moving in and timber and naval stores moving out. "Fanlew" is a combination of the names of John Lewis Philips, the founder of the Florida Central Railroad, and his wife Fannie.
