Pittock Mansion, Portland

4.6
Nestled in the hills and commanding a wonderful view of the city, Pittock Mansion is a window into Portland’s affluent past. The 22-room chateau with surrounding gardens was built in 1909 for Henry Pittock, a successful publisher, pioneer, businessman, and politician, and his wife Georgiana, a skilled fundraiser, philanthropist, and the founder of the Portland Rose Festival. After the couple passed away, the house went through a period of dilapidation until the City of Portland acquired it. Today, you can tour the fully restored home. Take in the interior's large collection of vintage furniture and artwork, as well as some of the most innovative technical solutions of the period. On a nice day, you can have a picnic in the gardens and enjoy the view of the city skyline. Keep an eye out for ghosts who are rumored to haunt the house.

  • Very pretty outside grounds and nice view of the city. I didn’t want to pay the money to tour the inside so can’t really say if it is worth it.  more »
  • Beautiful place to visit and even more beautiful during the Christmas holiday season. Each room was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The grounds are beautiful just as well. Enjoy your visit  more »

  • Finally made my way in for a self guided tour followed by a "behind the scenes" tour. A fair bit of history is packed into this house, and it's definitely worth the trip for either type of tour. Staff was very friendly and helpful (and many of them were volunteers). Would recommend a visit for anyone who lives or works in the Portland metro area that is interested in a little history. The grounds are also beautiful, and free to roam. There are at least two trail approaches to the mansion, so it's possible to hike up from elsewhere.
  • Such a great historical landmark. We really enjoyed this Portland gem. The garden is beautiful and has a great view of the city from above. The house is so well curated and has been beautifully restored to it's original glory. The amount of educational materials and artifacts is incredible, especially for a museum of this size. This is a great day activity for both families and adults without children alike. It was really interesting seeing the West coast's own "Downton".
  • A very well preserved and managed early 1900's mansion. The rooms, architecture and use of early 20th century technology is wonderfully interesting and informative. For a house that is over 100 years old (and hasn't been occupied for more than 70) this mansion and grounds are exceedingly well kept. The docents are extremely knowledgeable and are a wealth of information. A real find. Highly recommended.
  • Interesting museum because you can feel the history. Everything is written on the walls and explained. The house has been preserved with all of the inventions that were new back then that we take for granted now. Great for hiking afterward. Amazing views of downtown. Good price for a museum.
  • Pittock Mansion is very carefully and beautiful preserved Victorian era Home. This mansion has dedicated care takers who manages everything to make this mansion beautiful and intact. They recently installed history boards with all necessary information along with the vintage photographs of the family members, architects and workers who built this mansion. Each and every room is very beautifully preserved like Pittock family is still living there. Rise garden surrounds the mansion contains more than 200 various types of rose plants. Hill point view of the mansion shows a panaromic view of Portland city. Must visit place for everyone.
