Learned a lot about Astoria here

Beautiful house right in downtown Astoria. Self guided tour with guides available for questions. There is a gift shop in the old stables and the staff is very friendly.

Since a group of us 70 year olds have a 10 day excursion coming up this fall to DC, we wanted to practice "touristing" historical sites and we were really pleased with the house and grounds---felt as though we had traveled back to the beginning, thriving days of Astoria. Because Capt Flavel was held in such high esteem and was... More

Wonderful restoration of period home. Garden is great especially trees. The video interpretation gives good overview of region's history. Worth a visit.

Buy tickets at the Carriage House. The buggies and other objects at the Carriage House are more interesting than the house itself. Yet the gardens and house are very unique. The docent ladies inside are the best ever. A Mrs. Diamond kept us spellbound and she knows her stuff.

Very interesting. Unique. Lots of history in that old house (mansion). Lots of antiques. Men leave the women off because it will require some time to enjoy it all.

Very well done in the original style of the home. Downtown and easy to visit. Self guided tours and I'm not sure if they do guided tours.

This old home has been salvaged and saved from neglect to be preserved. The carriage house has been restored, after being used for years to house the red cross. The rose garden with plantings from recent years through the greatful help of the Portland Royal Rosarians. The furniture for the most part is not origional but affords a great look... More

spent 2 days in Astoria and went to the famers market, and saw many paintings of this house, after finding out what and where it was, we took a 7 dollar tour, fantastic!

This is really a cool house. The short film about Flavel before going through the house was very informative. The volunteers were helpful and fun that answered questions in the house.
