Create an itinerary including Pittock Mansion
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.

  • After the disappointment of Portland city centre this place is a jewel. Perched above the city it is a look into the lives of a self made man and his family. Restored by the city it is well worth a...

  • It was a nice tour of an early 20th century mansion. There are outstanding views of Portland and surrounding area. Such a beautiful home.

  • We thought we had scheduled for Friday but ended up being scheduled for Saturday. We arrived on Friday and they got us in - great customer service! The mansion itself is really interesting and a must see. We love how much of it was preserved and the views will knock your socks off. All of the staff are wonderful to work with - great communication and really make you feel like they care that you are there. If you are in Portland - add this to your list!
  • We really enjoyed visiting this museum during our West Coast trip a couple years back. The views are phenomenal and the mansion itself was beautiful. We purchased tickets online prior to arriving and it was very easy. The rooms are in pristine condition and they have great furniture and art throughout as well. Outside in the parking lot is a bonus view of the city skyline. It's amazing and a great photo op as well. It's up high on a mountain area and really lends itself to sitting outside and enjoying the weather and sky. The staff was very knowledgeable and they had plenty to talk through on each area / piece. Take some time and learn about all the history behind not just the mansion, but the area / city at the time the mansion was built. It really is very educational in a fun way! Overall: A+ A must-do when visiting the area. Take some time to enjoy all the info plaques and take a break with a view of the skyline outside!
