The Zimmerman Heritage Farm

A lasting vestige of
East Multnomah County's
agricultural roots

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.

The Zimmerman Heritage Farm is a unique cultural education and recreational resource that is being created for the benefit of the public on a 5.98-acre historic site in Gresham, Oregon. The focal point is the historic Zimmerman House, a Victorian era farmhouse, which was built in 1874 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The educational and interpretive focus of the historic house museum is the heritage of the Zimmerman family and dairy farming in East Multnomah County.

You can learn more about the Zimmerman House Museum by visiting the Fairview-Rockwood-Wilkes Historical Society website.

The Master Plan for the Zimmerman Heritage Farm outlines a comprehensive vision and a long-range, phased implementation plan for cultural heritage education and complementary recreation facilities, programs, and special events and activities.

The park is open holidays and special occasions. Check our website calendar for upcoming events.
