The mansion is characterized by its impressive architecture and its 23 rooms filled with works of art and antiques, where you can discover the fascinating success story of Portland’s first tycoons, Henry and Georgiana Pittock, who were instrumental in the development of the city.

Henry and Georgiana arrived in Oregon separately in the mid-1800s and over the next 60 years dedicated themselves to hard work, community service and pride in their home. In 1860 Henry Pittock took over the town newspaper, eventually becoming The Oregonian that the people of Portland read today. He built a business empire in industries as diverse as real estate, banking, railroads, ranching, mining, and pulp and paper.

The mansion hosts rotating historical exhibits featuring art, artifacts, photography, and more that educate visitors about period life in Portland, Oregon, and the United States. Celebrate.” Check out current exhibits and upcoming events at the Pittock Mansion.
