  • I went to Victoria Mansion, like, 15 years ago, and I liked going there to see the things inside it. I also liked sitting in my car front of it while waiting for the car in front of me to turn. Would def recommend.
  • Amazing piece of history in a center of Portland! Glad it was not demolished for a gas station! Knowledgeable tour guides inside the mansion. Definitely worth to check out!
