Pittock Mansion offers an opportunity to enjoy a bit of Portland’s past. Completed in 1914 by Henry and Georgiana Pittock, their Portland mansion creatively incorporates Turkish, English and French designs. In keeping with their loyalty to their home state, the Pittocks hired Oregon craftsmen and artisans, and used Northwest materials to build their house.
A consummate businessman, Henry Pittock took ownership of the Weekly Oregonian in 1860, changing its format to the daily paper that still is read today. He went on to build an empire incorporating real estate, banking, railroads, steamboats, sheep ranching, silver mining, and the pulp and paper industry.
The Pittock estate spreads over 46 acres of land with an incredible view of downtown Portland.
