The Pittock Mansion was home to Portland pioneers Henry and Georgiana Pittock from 1914 to 1919. During the late 1800s and the early 1900s, their lives and work paralleled the growth of Portland from a small Northwest town site to a thriving city with a quarter million population. With its eclectic architectural design and richly decorated interior, including family artifacts, the Pittock Mansion stands today as a living memorial of this family's contributions to the blossoming of Portland and its people. Their most popular shows have included Decorative Art Glass from the Bob Rau collection; photography from Cronise Studios; Early American Art Pottery; Visions and Visionaries -- Early Oregon Artists; and Miles of Tiles, to name a few.
