Spring Break Blogging PART 5 – The Old & Modern Pittock Mansion Of Portland

Gotta love these places. It’s a step back in time. What is cool about this is that at the time it was built to be so modern with a phone, an elevator and some cool kitchen gadgets. A little Wiki blurb:

The Pittock Mansion is a French Renaissance château in the West Hills of Portland, Oregon originally built as a private home for The Oregonian publisher Henry Pittock and his wife, Georgiana. It is a 22 room estate built of Tenino Sandstone situated on 46 acres (190,000 m2) that is now owned by the city’s Bureau of Parks and Recreation and open for touring. In addition, the grounds provide panoramic views of Downtown Portland.

I tried to capture it all. Here is the house and the outside:
