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.

Pittock Mansion Reviews
A fantastic view into the early 1900's. The craftsmanship is amazing and plumbing innovations in the bath were fun to see. Affords a great view of the city from above. more »
The building is beautiful, and the grounds are well maintained. The view of the city and Mt. Hood is stunning, and can see that this view must be on a plethora of postcards! Peaceful day, will return.... more »
There were some amazing views of the entire city of portland. It is a car ride up there and there is an entry fee. more »
An amazing Portland treasure! Between the incredible views and the wonderful architecture this is a must-see for every person visiting the city. The best part about it is you can get to it from Forest Park on a trail. Forest Park is a beautiful Urban Park of approximately 5000 Acres one of the largest in America. The Mansion is wonderful inside truly beautiful
I had a very long wait before my flight left and a local suggested this place. Being a history buff, I was so pleasantly surprised by the World's Fair Lewis and Clark exhibit on the bottom floor. Such an interesting time period! The house is gorgeous, the grounds are so pretty, especially with all the shaded trails through the woods. The gate house is definitely worth the little walk down the hill. I love all the period displays, clothes, kitchen utensils, cabinet products. The view of the city from behind the house is breathtaking. And then you turn around and see how splendid the house looks from the back. It's definitely a fairytale of a place. Loved my visit here!
A free and excellent place to take in Portland and Mt. Hood. My pictures don’t do this place any justice. This is a well known and popular place for a reason. Always popular with photographers and joggers, and, with tourists, too. Parking wasn’t a problem when I visited, but I would imagine weekends to be crowded. A must visit if you’re in the area.
I didn't go in, at 12 bucks a pop just to go in and see furniture my grandmother used to own, eh. But the grounds are gorgeous! Bring your best camera. Yes, I like flowers. There is up on the patio outside the windows purple glass set in the patio. They have flowers I've never seen. The bluish purple ones with pointy pedals, are called Sea Holly. Parking is super super tight. But you really should go. just walk around outside you'll be glad you did. There is a portrait at the end of the garden that shows the old city of Portland, it's fun trying to figure out what is what. And you meet some really nice people there.
This a cool place to visit on a nice day. We went on a sunny Saturday around 3pm and it is a busy place. The exterior grounds are free to walk and better yet bring a blanket and some food and have a small picnic on the grass behind the mansion. if you enjoy history and vintage things then pay $12 to tour the inside. The house is very cool and I’d prefer this to a museum, it’s a very impressive mansion and interior. Like going to some old rich people’s open house.
