  • I went here a couple weeks ago. it was truly amazing place to walk around. like you just went back in time where you got to see the richest family lived. the historian lady was very helpful and well knowledged. I wish I could go up to the tower and see where Captain George worked and oversea the shops. I would like to stand out at the balcony where Nellie and Katie ( George's daughters) stood as they wave to the ships going by. but due to fire safety code. it's not allowed 5 stars still
  • A lot of the history of Astoria centers around Captain George Flavel and his development of the economy of the region. His story is the story of Astoria and the house is a definite must see for any visitor that has even a hint of curiosity about how it was to live in the early days of our country.
  • Really old house, very interesting to see how rich people live back in the day.
  • This is a beautiful old home. I love the history behind the house and the captain and why he built it where he did. You feel like you've stepped back in time and can appreciate the "non-hectic" lifestyle they lived. Reading one of the daughters diary entry on the earthquake in California was very interesting! If you love history, this is a must see!♡
  • Amazing home and architecture but could never see myself owning such a place, even if I hit billionaire rich jackpot.
