Beautiful home for being built 129yrs ago. If you like history this is a great place to visit and just imagine what they didn't have compared to what we do have!! The 9 foot doors were amazing and gave the house the look of grandeur and what character the home has. It was worth the seeing. Great job by the... More

Enormous mansion that gives a peek into the lives of the wealthy Flavel family, whose patriarch, Captain Flavel, was a founding father of Astoria. The town has hundreds of Victorian houses, but this is the most spectacular. Some of the furniture is original to the house, and the rest is nonetheless beautiful to see.

One of the best preserved, small town early houses that I have ever seen. The city did itself proud here. Go see it.

Stopped by with our kids. Interesting self guided tour. You can walk in most rooms and really see the house. Not able to access the the attic...which made me want to jump the rope and go explore.

When you walk in the front you are taken back to earlier days. Every room has a story to tell. The fireplace mantels are amazing each one different. The furniture us awesome and the story of Captain Flavel is great.

Great example of Victorian age in the Pacific Northwest. Nice inside and outside gardens carriage house. Many more Victorian's line the streets of Astoria. Take a hike up 3rd street at 33% grade it will get your legs a wobbling. My doxie and I took it on,can you too?

I love old Victorian homes, and when I saw this one from the outside, I just had to go in. The grounds are nicely kept with the original fence still around the lot. The carriage house is restored very nicely with a sled and buggy both. This is where the public restrooms are (which were very very nice). Watch the... More

Totally enjoyed touring this house and learning about the occupants. It is always fun to imagine what it would have been like to live in such places. You are free to wander through most of the rooms and docents are available for questions. Especially liked the stained glass window above the front door.

The Flavel house and carriage house provided a wonderful look into our country's history. The Flavel family did a great deal to grow the Astoria area and increase the shipping trade into the Portland area.
