Many of you suggested visiting the Museum when we asked what to do. I’m so glad you told us about the Museum. This was probably one of the most eclectic museums I’ve been too.
Much of it was historic, pioneer themed, and then some of it was local artists and sculptures.
There were so many weird/interesting newspaper articles and photos all over.
The kids favorite part was the old telephones. There was even a super old switchboard, telephone booth, and a bunch of fun spin phones.
We loved the mix at the Museum, it’s definitely a fun stop if you are in town.
Did you know that Fairview can boast that the first baby born in town also had the LONGEST marriage? Like, they celebrated their 80th wedding anniversary. TOGETHER!
This is a replica of the Mammoth Bones they found nearby. You can actually visit the site and go fishing nearby, we did here. The second building is mainly local paintings, sculptures, drawers, gemstones and other miscellaneous things. There's even a gift shop!
I found this signage funny. To flush, I literally counted, but only had to hold the handle down for 16 seconds.
