Heslin House Museum & Fairview City Jail
60 Main St, Fairview, OR 97024 - United States
Just off Oregon’s I-84 in the City of Fairview, you’ll find a historic home and jailhouse waiting to tell their tales. Under the care of ECHO (East County Historical Organization) the Heslin House and Fairview Jail museums show a slice of the state’s small town, rural life from the late 1800s on.
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 Heslin House was built in circa 1890 and Heslin Family memorabilia is on display.
A World War II exhibit includes posters, ration books, and other treasures focused on the Homefront.
The first floor bedroom is complete with furniture, hats, gloves, dresses and knickknacks. Walking into this room is stepping back in time!
A number of quilts are on display, and the 1915 Fairview City Jail is included on the tour.
