PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — High above downtown in Portland’s west hills sits Pittock Mansion, the 23-room house that was once home to one of Portland’s most prominent families.

Henry Pittock was an Englishman who came across the country on the Oregon Trail in the 1850s to seek his fortune. His wife, Georgiana, was from Missouri.

More than 50 years ago, the 16,000-square foot house was purchased by the city of Portland and opened to visitors.

And each year, volunteers splendidly decorate Pittock Mansion for the holidays.
