Our expert local guides will take you past the modern identity of Portland back to a more dangerous era, where murders, kidnappings, and organized crime could be found behind most of the elegant storefronts of the city. Listen to stories taken straight out of the true history of the last 150 years, and watch for yourself as the spirits of the past can still be seen today.

It was an interesting little look into the past. With the covid precautions, you're sort of herded into a line while you meander your way through the mansion on the predesignated path. Its worth the price of admission, but it won't blow your mind. Its a nice activity to do if you're up in the Washington Park area. The views from outside the mansion are absolutely spectacular though.

This is a great way to learn more about the city of Portland. Throughout the house, there is info all over regarding the history of Portland. There are also amazing views of the city since the house sits up on the hillside. I highly recommend seeing this landmark.

Interesting place. Quite a walk uphill if you don't get a parking spot in the lot. Grounds are well maintained. People are friendly. The view is Fantastic! My husband took pictures and they turned out great. Once is enough but definitely good stuff.

This is a regal mansion, a short drive from the Washington Park. Unfortunately when we visited, it was foggy and the view of the city from the mansion was not the best, but on a clear day, I'm certain that the view would be excellent. The mansion is quite plush and grand, and reflects the days and lifestyle of the "elite" in the early twentieth century. I believe it was owned by the owner of "The Oregonian" newspaper. We took the self-guided tour, which cost $12 per person. The rooms are well arranged and some (not all) artefacts actually belonged to the original Pittock Mansion. It was quite interesting to walk around and get a sense of life a hundred years ago. There were volunteers stationed at different parts of the house and they were more than willing to answer questions. The mansion features some interesting "modern" amenities like an electric "dumbwaiter", intercom system, multiple showerheads separately for hot and cold water and a refrigerator to name a few - it helped shed light into housing in those days. The tour leads you through multiple rooms, many of which have displays elaborating details about the room and how it featured into the personal and/or professional life of the Pittocks. Although a lot of furnishings are not original to the Pittocks, it was fascinating to learn how they collected those from other wealthy families from the area carefully used those in the restoration of the Pittock Mansion. I would definitely rate this place a must-visit for architecture and history buffs!
