You step right back into the 1800's in this home. The grounds have some lovely trees ( cant remember the last time I saw a ginko ! Was dissappointed that we could not enter some of the rooms with the antique square grand piano, etc.... and the place is pretty moldy and musty if you have asthma. Considering the climate... More

This home is beautifully restored as well as the carriage house. Before taking the self guided tour there is a nice informative film about the Captain and his family that lived there. The film brings the home more to life.

Here's one of those attractions that you should take a few minutes and check out. It's right there, it's very interesting, you can fit it in very easily and really learn a lot about older Astoria. Don't miss it even if you, like I do some places, just make a quick tour and be on my way.

Driving through Astoria on our way to Seaside, decided to stop off at museum (house was seen in the movie "The Goonies). Beautiful house, and learnt a great deal about the history of Astoria. Staff was very helpful, and even directed us to another place we wouldn't have stopped at, Fort Stevens Park. Well worth the stop.

The history of this house and how it was restored and maintained is just amazing. It is a self guided tour but there are attendants to answer any questions. Most all of the rooms have a sign telling about the history. The beauty of these homes is you can tour them multi times and always see something you missed on... More

What an amazing place. Hard to believe that they wanted to tear it down for a parking lot. Take a trip back in time when you step in this house. I really liked seeing the real hand written journals and letters of events that happened over a 100 years ago.

The price was a little high for the tours. I love the house and the people. I am a little sad we couldn't see the top floor and the look out though. Wish they would figure out a way to let us go up there.

Full of history and beautifully decorated rooms and grounds. My favorite wre the bedrooms upstairs. There is a lady on each floor to answer questions you have.

In the 1950's the Flavel house was abandon and boarded up. There was a plan to burn it down and use the land for a parking lot for the Clatsop county courthouse. Some forward looking people preserved the mansion and it's being restored. It's well worth the time to take the tour A grand old mansion from long ago

This is a beautiful mansion from the end of the 19th century that has been lovingly refurnished by the local historical society. There is a small gift shop in the carriage house, where the tickets (6$ each) are purchased. There is a video detailing the life and times of Captain Flavel, which was a bit too long for our liking,... More
