"the trusted voice of teens who travel"

The Pittock mansion was built as the private residence of The Oregonian published Henry Pittock. It is a château in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon, with 22-rooms, sitting on 46 acres.
Some claim the mansion is haunted by Henry Pittock and his wife, Georgiana. People have supposedly sensed their presence, as they proudly claim the mansion as their territory. After all, the Pittocks came from pioneer stock and built a huge financial empire. Their mansion was their everything. It was as if their whole lives led up to their home.
That being said… the house is overwhelmingly beautiful. The ornate architecture and the overall extravagant style of the mansion, reminiscent of the French Renaissance.
For youth (ages 6-18), admission is $7.00, whereas with adults it is $10. Children under 6, though, can go in for free. Also, the backyard is free, and that’s where the scenery is. You can see Mt. Hood and the whole city of Portland. It is breath-taking, to say the least.
