Fairfield Museum and History CenterThe Fairfield Museum and History Center opened to the public on September 16, 2007.  Seven years in the making, this educational and cultural facility unveils a vital new chapter in the history of our community.

The creation of the Fairfield Museum and History Center was a community-wide effort, and now it serves as a vital touchstone, a place to exchange ideas, and a center for learning for generations to come.  Through its exhibitions, programs and activities, we can explore who we are, learn how our corner of the world came to be, and how our future might unfold.
