History of The Fairview heritage house
The Fairview was built after the Japanese invasion (World War II 1945) by the talented chinese architect and businessman Tan Sri Datuk William Tan.
This historical building was planned by him to be a focal point for his many functions when he was serving as the 1st president of Kuching Municipal Council (1956-1959), speaker of the Dewan Undangan Negeri (State Legislative assembly) and also as his own residence.
Besides being a politician and successful businessman - he shines as a great humanitarian devoting many years as the chairman of the "Malaysian Red Crescent", the "Sarawak Society for the Blind" and other social work in Sarawak. The late Tan Sri, who was also the first pilot of Sarawak, lived in The Fairview until 1996.
In 2003 "The Fairview" turned into a guest house. The old style and atmosphere of the house has been kept until today - you will enjoy it!
