From 1909 to 1919, this 22-room French Renaissance-style estate was the home of Portland's original power couple, Henry and Georgiana Pittock; Henry's business empire included The Oregonian newspaper, and Georgiana championed women's rights and the city's then-burgeoning Rose Festival. The Pittocks' former property, set on 46 acres and perched 1,000-feet above downtown Portland, offers one of Oregon's most sweeping views of the city and the Cascade Range.

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.
