Henry Pittock, founder of Portland's Oregonian newspaper, built this spectacular mansion in 1914. The stately mansion boasts three floors and an incredible view of Portland from the west hills. The mansion has long been a museum, exhibiting a great deal of local history through displays and documentation. Guests can tour the mansion and even book space for private functions.
In 1960 I went to the University of Oregon with Diane Pittock, stayed at her home the Pittock mansion many times. Date of visit doesnt go back to 1960 so I have to make it current to this form.

Glad we went – very impressive. The Pittock Mansion is beautifully restored and full of amazing antique furnishings, art, and architecture. Tours were available but we simply walked around. There were signs throughout that explained the history of the mansion and everything else inside and out. The view of downtown Portland and the gardens around the mansion were also stunning. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Portland.
We went on an unusually clear day in late November and encountered a little bit on Thanksgiving weekend congestion but it was still worth it. The inside of the mansion is worth the cost to tour once, but not something for children unless they are genuinely interested in history. The view from the back is stunning, showing off Mt Hood, Mt St. Helens, and Mt Adams on clear days. I'm looking forward to going again this summer when the gardens will be in bloom.
