Heslin House and Fairview Jail
After 17 years of dedication and perseverance by many volunteers and gracious donations from the community, the 1893 Heslin House Museum opened its doors on May 18, 2008. The historic home is located at 60 Main St in Fairview within Ne-cha-co-kee Park, adjacent to the Fairview City Jail. Both are next to Handy City Park, former site of Fairview’s Historic City Hall. These areas also contain a rain garden, gazebo, a historical marker, and play sets for the local children. The museum is home to ECHO’s office and our collection of historical artifacts from many different Heslin family members and from the Fairview, Rockwood, and Wilkes areas that we represent.
The Historic Zimmerman House Museum
This is a delightful, turn-of-the-century farmhouse situated in a rapidly urbanizing area of Northwest Gresham in East Multnomah County, Oregon. Thousands of artifacts fill the many rooms of the Zimmerman House. Many hours have and will be spent sorting, inventorying and cataloging this enormous collection. An intact collection of this size, exclusively owned by one family that remained in the same house for over 120 years, is rare among historical house museums throughout the United States.
