“faithfully depicting life during the early 1900's”
The William Jennings Bryan House, also known as Fairview, is a historic house built in 1902--03 in Lincoln, Nebraska, United States. It is noteworthy as the home of William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925), and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1963. Five acres of the adjoining property was the original site of Bryan Memorial Hospital, now owned by BryanLGH Health System, which also owns Fairview. The home was restored in 1994. The upper two floors house the Wm. Jennings Bryan Institute, which consists of three centers: the Center for Bioethics, the Center for Advancing Nursing Practice and the Center for Quality. The lower level of Fairview is open to the public and features the Bryan Museum, as well as rooms furnished to depict the family’s life during the early 1900s. In 1922, William Jennings Bryan gave his home, Fairview, and surrounding land to the Nebraska Conference of the United Methodist Church for the purpose of establishing a new hospital in Lincoln. From this gift and others, a dream became a reality when the 60-bed Bryan Memorial Hospital opened on June 6, 1926. When Bryan School of Nursing opened the same year with 37 students, Fairview became the student dormitory. Bryan Medical Center continues its commitment to providing quality health care. Today, Bryan Health includes a 620-bed regional medical center, offering a complete range of inpatient and outpatient diagnostic, therapeutic and ancillary services; LifePointe medical health and wellness facility; and the Heartland Health Alliance network, which fosters collaborative efforts throughout the region. The comprehensive care and treatment facilities available at Bryan make it possible for our skilled staff members to provide the most sophisticated and advanced health care.
