We didn't make it in time to walk through the historic building, the torus run from 9am to 12 noon on the hour; the gardens were quite beautiful. This would be a beautiful place to hold a wedding, if you don't mind the highway noise in the background. The gardens and nature paths could use a bit more upkeep. It... More

A free guided tour is scheduled a couple of times a week. It was great to learn about native Oregon plants. There was a plant sale in the greenhouse where you could buy native Oregon plant starts. It was also nice to walk around the property to see a few other garden areas.

Deepwood Estate in Salem is a 120 year old home built in 1894 with both formal English gardens and wild nature areas. Tours of the home cost a fee and are open to the public at set hours. They give you a glance at how an elegant home of over 100 years ago looked, and the furniture and clothing styles.... More

Deepwood Estate is a great place to go to see a beautiful old house and to stroll through English gardens. The house is large and ornate, with unusual decorative patterns. It was built in 1894 in a Queen Anne Victorian style. It has extensive gardens on four acres of property. You climb about eight steps to get to the impressive... More

The perfect event to celebrate the holiday season. The historic home is all decorated for the holidays and the tea is lovely. The tea is hosted by a team of friendly volunteers and is well organized. The food is generous and champagne is offered as well as tea. A tour of the home follows the tea. Because it is a... More

The Deepwood Estate is truly a well-preserved piece of history. The surrounding garden was superb, with more flower varieties than can be listed. I was more impressed, overall, with the Bush mansion, which is quite literally just down the street. If I were to choose one of these two mansions to visit, I'd pick Bush mansion, and stroll the gardens... More

The Deepwood house is remarkably well preserved and in excellent condition for an 1893 house. The tour and history of the house and families which occupied it is interesting and well worth your time. Should not be missed if visitng Salem, Oregon. The grounds are also very tidy and well maintained. The only drawback is an overly busy street in... More

Definitely worth a visit to this lovely estate built in late 1800's and existing much as it was. Stained glass windows by Povey, "the Tiffany of the North West", were beautiful and unusual, as was the craftsmanship throughout. The gardens, originally designed by the first team of female landscape architects, are spectacular, and lovingly cared for by a team of... More

I was just there today for a Celebration of Life for a co-worker. I was blown away! Anyone who is even a little interested in the Victorian era will not want to leave this house. The gardens, gazebos and interesting mazes are something that you will not soon forget. I do not live in the Salem area, (Springfield), but I... More

This beautiful old historic house would be reason enough for a long visit and tour, but the estate is surrounded by a lovely garden and grounds. Leave plenty of time when you come.
