Zimmerman House Museum [OR]

The Zimmerman House Museum is located in East Multnomah County, Oregon. The home was purchased by the Zimmermans in 1869, and was donated to the Fairview Rockwood Historical Society in 1987 in order to serve as a historic house museum. The museum focuses primarily on the life and times of the residents of the home, and contains an impressive collection of thousands of artifacts.

The site offers basic visitor and historical information regarding the Zimmerman House Museum. The site is also part of the Fairview Rockwood Historical Society website, and so offers information about the society and their projects.
