We headed to the historic home because Mikey's dad worked there in the Goonies, but we found so much history and importance to it. Cant George Flavel was a hero to the region and the short film on entrance explains it all. The home is small and the tour would not take long, but it is well worth a visit.... More

The volunteers really know about this historical site and Captain George Flavel. The mansion is in excellent restored condition. Well worth the time to visit.

We stopped in here while staying at the Hotel Elliot. It was close only three blocks away. You purchase your tickets in the carriage house that use to actually hold the horses. Once inside the house we were greeted by a very friendly little old lady that took our tickets. She gave us some brief history of the house. We... More

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.
