This house is really neat. It is not the only Flavel house in town. (insert spooky sounds here) You would have to know someone who was from there to find all the hidden treasures in Astoria. The Flavel house museum is a great way to spend some time just wandering and looking at all the history. You cannot go up... More

Fascinating history of the man who weighed so heavily in starting Astoria. This old Victorian house (3 stories) is filled with antique relics. A small fee, worth it. A small but very nice gift shop. Huge old trees on the property. Stair to contend with getting into the house, and more if you wish to see the 2nd floor where... More

I liked their video introduction. The house and grounds are spectacular. Second-best place to see, after the bridge and the column.

It is reported that Captain George Flavels wife would sit up I'm the coupala and watch locals be shanghaied. This at that time was huge buisness to put to work unsuspecting and inebriated and maybe undocumented illegal aliens to keep his buisness profitable. His heirs still own personal and commercial property in Astoria. Descendant Harry has been reported to have... More

Fun to see how futuristic the thought was behind the building of this old mansion. Enjoyed the film about the family and the history of the area.

This was the home of the first bar pilot to start the trade at the mouth of the Columbia River. The house and grounds have been carefully preserved and is operated by the Clatsop County Historical Society. The interior is rich with imported stone and rare woods. Most of the furniture is also original to the home. Must see!

This house is so lovely inside; you could feel the family enjoying life here. Well worth the price of admission.

Charming Victorian home. We were able to meander and explore at our own pace. We found several treasures reasonably priced at the gift shop.
