• Fairview Training Center;ย Salem, Oregon

    The Fairview Training Center was a state-run facility for people with developmental disabilities in Salem, Oregon, United States. Fairview was established in 1907 as the State Institution for the Feeble-Minded.

    In 1923, the legislature established the Oregon Board of Eugenics, and Fairview’s superintendent served as an ex-officio board member. The eugenics legislation provided for the “sterilization of all feeble-minded, insane, epileptics, habitual criminals, moral degenerates, and sexual perverts who are a menace to society.”

    Founded 1907; closed 2000.

    Bonus: Where’s Molly? is a 2007 documentary about Molly Daly who was institutionalized at the Fairview Hospital and Training Center in the 1950s.
