Take a step back in time and live the elegance of the late Victorian era by visiting the Flavel House Museum at the corner of 8th and Duane Streets in Astoria. Operated by the Clatsop County Historical Society, Captain George Flavel and his family called this historic landmark called home in the late 1800s. Flavel was a Columbia River bar pilot and one the area’s first millionaires. The 11,600-square-foot structure is considered one of the best preserved examples of Queen Anne architecture in the Northwest with its steeply pitched roof, patterned shingles, cut-away bay windows, wrap-around porch and asymmetrical facade. As you peek into the past when entering the mansion, you’ll experience yesteryear in all its glory with original Charles Eastlake influence woodwork, period furnishings and six elaborate hardwood fireplace mantels. The home's original carriage house which is now a visitor center with additional exhibits, the museum store and an orientation video. If you’re looking for a memorable setting for a special occasion, the beautifully landscaped grounds and the carriage house’s modern kitchen are available for rentals.
