Pioneers settled Gresham in the mid-1800s. Today you can view artifacts and old photos in the Gresham Historical Society museum, housed in a 1912 English Tudor that was the city’s first library. The building itself is worth a look, with its herringbone brickwork and leaded glass windows that feature the intricate signature stamps of early book publishers.
