The Heslin House was built circa 1893. The current exhibit is in two rooms on the first floor and combines photographs, maps, text, and artifacts to tell the stories of the early settlers, Dairy Row, and the Heslin family. The exhibit periodically changes. The circa 1915 Fairview City Jail, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is also included in the tour.
The museum is open to the public the 3rd Saturday of every month from noon - 4pm in the winter, and every Saturday in July/August. We are exhibiting a sampling of historic dolls and a World War II exhibit.
We have self-guided tours and need volunteers to work some or all of the day. You'll be partnered with another volunteer and given 'on-the-job' training!
