About Pittock Mansion
The Pittock Mansion was built in the early part of the 1900’s, between 1909 and 1914 and is located in Portland’s West Hills. It is a French Renaissance style Chateau and the architecture is amazing.
The original owners were Henry and Georgiana Pittock, who settled in during the time Portland was changing from a lumber town in to a bustling metropolitan urban hub.
The Pittock Mansion was occupied until 1958 and it was nearly destroyed when developers were eyeing the area for development. A group of forward seeing community activists saves the Pittock Mansion and it has become one of Portland’s public museums, opening in 1965.
The home sits on 46 acres, which is now a public park under their 501(c)(3) non-profit Pittock Mansion Society.
