Pittock Mansion Montage

Built in 1914 by newspaper magnate Henry Pittock, this 16,000 square foot French Renaissance-style chateau rests in Oregon’s West Hills, high above the city of Portland. Entrance to the mansion currently costs $8.50 per person, although you can now skip the admission having seen the best bits here.

    I so have to incorporate that Turkish Smoking Room motif into my tiny room. One wonders why there is a writing desk there… to fervently jot down whatever might come to mind after a good ‘smoke’? lol…. thanks for sharing.

    I haven’t been to Pittock Mansion in years and years, but I remember it being pretty impressive. I’d say it’s worth the price of admission… once. Glad you had a chance to see it.

    The shot of the staircase is gorgeous, great photo. It is indeed very grand. We didn’t get to see this while in Portland so glad to see it here.

    Nice photos of the mansion, but what really got me was the mountain. What a beautiful skyline! The way the peak is so far above everything else in the shot, and the only one with snow – draws instant comparisons in my mind to Mt. Fuji.
