William Jennings Bryan House

The William Jennings Bryan House, also known as Fairview, is a historic house built in 1902 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.
