Website

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.

Exhibits

ECHO’s Heslin House is currently featuring a World War II exhibit, focusing on the era’s poster propaganda and items from local families.

One of our best artifacts is a U.S. Navy Log Album, featuring pictures stateside and in Saipan.

We also have quilts on exhibit from the early 1900s.
