As Portland’s premier historic house museum turns 100 in 2014, we celebrate the history, culture and visual splendor that make Pittock Mansion a treasured landmark.
The Centennial celebration is an unprecedented opportunity to celebrate the Mansion’s history and plan its future. A council of community leaders who are passionate about Pittock Mansion and its role in preserving and sharing Portland history are providing advice, counsel, and assistance in advocacy, networking, and fundraising in preparation for and during the Centennial year. The Centennial Council members are already helping connect us to resources that will further the Mansion’s efforts to thrive for the next 100 years.
