Fairview Pioneer Museum

Synopsis & Main Exhibits

Located in downtown Fairview, and originally an RCMP residence, the Fairview RCMP Centennial Museum depicts a typical home from the 1920’s era, with displays on the main and upper floor, basement and porch. This museum is literally filled with artifacts, displays and photos that capture and preserve the history of Fairview and the surrounding area.


This ten acre parcel of land just north of Fairview will eventually become a townsite, complete with farm, oilfield, sawmill and demonstration areas. The artifacts are currently being displayed in the restored MacDonald school, Hull house, John Sweeney cabin and Fairview Agencies buildings, while other historical buildings, which have been moved to the site from the surrounding area, undergo restoration.
