Zimmerman House Volunteer &  New Member Open House

If you have ever thought about volunteering at the Zimmerman House or joining ECHO (an East County Historical Organization) – now’s your chance to learn more!

We are holding two “open house” events: Thursday, April 12th from 4pm – 7pm and Saturday, April 14th from 9am-noon.  The Zimmerman House is at 17111 NE Sandy Blvd in Gresham.  Stop by and join us for a cup of coffee and cookies.

ECHO was formed in 1987 and is home to both the Zimmerman House and Heslin House museums.  We are an all-volunteer organization at this time, and are looking for new members and volunteers to support the preservation work at both sites, do basic office work, help with marketing, work in the gardens, etc.

The historic Zimmerman House was built in 1874 and was home to three generations of the Zimmerman Family.  Their furnishings and personal articles remain in this two-story Victorian home, with nine rooms open to the public.   We hope to be open to the public every Saturday again this summer, and are recruiting new volunteers to be on site.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or 503-618-0946.
