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.

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!
