Pittock Mansion

One of the highlights of our trip to Oregon was a place called Pittock Mansion. It was Kenna's turn to pick a place to visit so, this happened to be the place she decided on. If you live in or around Portland and you've never been to Pittock Mansion I can tell you that it's a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. It would be fun to pack a lunch and have a picnic while walking around the property. Apparently a lot of wedding pictures are take up at the mansion and I can see why. It's a treasure of a place and I'm happy the city of Portland saved it from disrepair.

While we were there I took over a hundred pictures. It was a really hot day but it was worth the sweat. . . hehehe. Anyway, I thought I would share half of the pictures that I took while taking a tour of the mansion. The gardens are beautiful but because of the heat I didn't explore very much outside. Enjoy.

Thanks. We'll have to check it out for our next trip to Fabric Depot. Last trip we went to the Rose Garden.

Thanks for this. I love the Portland area, having grown up there. Such a beautiful part of the country but I'm not biased or anything, right? Glad you enjoyed it!

I love old homes and old mansions. I love the going back in time aspect of this place. Loved your photos. I watched it twice. My favorite was the floor in the serving area.

Loved your pictures. I agree, the Pittock Mansion is a real treasure. The Mansion itself is magnificent, but then you walk around the bluff, and oh, what a glorious view you have! We went once when they had it decorated for Christmas, and it was particularly spectacular (not the view as much though, as it was raining :-) )

One of my absolute favorite things to do on vacation is to visit historic homes.

The first time I suggested it (on our honeymoon) I think my husband thought I was trying to torture him to death.

He won't admit it, but I think he now enjoys them as much as I do. We are planning a vacation right now and he asked me if I had a list of homes I wanted to visit yet LOL
