By the mid-1960s, the Mansion had fallen into disrepair, the Pittocks' remaining family members couldn't find a buyer, and it seemed fated for bulldozing; but local preservationists managed to raise the necessary funds to save it, and by 1974 it was named to the National Register of Historic Places. The Mansion now attracts over 800,000 visitors a year.
Art exhibits are often held here, featuring artwork and artifacts from Portland's early 1900s; past shows have included art glass, Oregonian painters and collections of handcrafted tiles. Crafts, accessories and decor based on the designs of the era can be found in the on-site store.
The Mansion's grounds, known as Pittock Acres Park, are open daily to the public and include picnic tables and a large network of hiking trails.
Our guide, Jeff, was great - he was from Portland and knew the city and the general area very well and could answer all questions articulately. Jeff offered coffee and pastry - I suggest he take his guests to one of Portland's many great cafe's (and charge another $5 if necessary).
A fantastic insight into the heartbeat of what Portland is all about. Our guide Jeff could not possibly be improved upon...with any other company, anywhere. I am recommending it to everyone! Portlanders need to take this trip, no matter how well they think they know the area. A+++
Very well organized small group trip. Would recommend it to my friends. Will use it again when I visit the pacific northwest.
