Constructed between 1909 and 1914 in Portland’s West Hills by Oregon pioneers Henry and Georgiana Pittock, Pittock Mansion is a meticulously preserved architectural landmark that symbolizes Portland’s transformation from a small lumber town into a bustling city. Home to the Pittocks and their descendants until 1958, the Mansion was nearly destroyed in the early 1960s when plans surfaced to turn the site over to developers. Spurred by community activists to preserve the historic home, City of Portland officials bought the estate in 1964. The house opened to the public as a museum in 1965. Today, the nonprofit Pittock Mansion Society and Portland Parks and Recreation collaborate to operate the museum and the surrounding 46-acre public park. The Pittock Mansion Society is an independent, federally-recognized, 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.
