Built in 1889, Fairlawn Mansion exhibits recall the elegance and prosperity of Superior's early boomtown days, as well as the mansion's unique 42 years as a children's home. From 1920-1962, Fairlawn Mansion was "home" to 2000 children in need of care and shelter. The exhibit and oral histories of former residents, volunteers and staff tell the story of those important but little-known years of Fairlawn's history.
