Zimmerman Heritage Farm
A lasting vestige of
The historic Zimmerman House Museum is a delightful, turn-of-the-century farmhouse situated in a rapidly urbanizing area of Northwest Gresham in East Multnomah County, Oregon. The farmhouse is located at 17111 NE Sandy Blvd on 5.98 acres, a remnant parcel of the original dairy farmstead that at one time extended over 600 acres of reclaimed bottom land along the Columbia River.
The Zimmerman Heritage Farm is our cultural heritage, a lasting vestige of East Multnomah County's agricultural roots. It offers the experience of "life as it really was" in the decades at the turn of the 20th century, reflecting the past through a mirror unique to the Zimmerman family's farming and domestic life.

Grave of an Unknown
Across the freeway next to the railroad tracks, in a direct line with the bronze marker on the one-ton boulder is a brass plate set in concrete, marking the site of the grave of an unknown pioneer child. The grave lies in Section 30, Township 1 N, Range 3 East, in the city of Portland, Oregon at the intersection of NE Wilkes Rd and NE 169th Ave.
It is reported in an affidavit filed in 1955, by Margaret Sales, that the grave holds the remains of a nameless girl, who died in 1849. She was only a day away from completing the grueling journey to Oregon.
