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.

This place is a gem. You can learn and see about the history of Astoria when it was the main port of entry on the part of the coast. 1800s home with beautiful furnishings. Besure and see the video in the carraige house. Open daily. Just West of downtown. Usually easy parking adjacent to the home.

We enjoyed the renovated home once owned by the Flavel family. The self-guided tour offers time to reflect and imagine life of the era.

Beautifully restored. Make sure you take the time to watch the short informative movie in the Carriage House. Great info about family and area.

The tour and family home seemed like the family was just out for a short holiday and woudl be back presently. You really felt like you understood the family members and their lives, and I really connected with the adult daughters. I could have read the diaries for hours as they were very articulate and descriptive. The description of their... More

Was very interesting, the house needs a bit of regular maintenance. Only about 30% of the furniture is original. However, $6 per adult is a bit high but received free passes from our hotel.
