Fairview cottage was owned by the National Council of Jewish Women and operated by the Junior Council. It was purchased in 1916 as part of their "Fresh Air" work that afforded urban and working girls a respite from the city. It was located at Whitby Beach.
Located nearby was a cottage owned by Arthur Cohen and another owned by Mr. and Mrs. Charles and Bertha Draimin. Mrs. Bertha Draimin was President of the Council of Jewish Women at the time that Fairview Cottage was purchased. Adelaide Cohen was the leader of the Jewish Girl Guildes and was the Superintendent of the Jewish Girls' Club, which was established in 1909 by the National Council of Jewish Women.
