Museums Astoria
Flavel House

Captain George Flavel earned his fortune as a pilot, guiding ships across the bar at the mouth of the Columbia River. His magnificent home, considered by many to be one of the finest examples of Queen Anne style architecture in Astoria, sits on park-like grounds covering an entire city block at the west end of downtown Astoria. Built in 1885, its decorative exterior, with hipped roof, balconies and verandas, is distinguished by a fourth-story cupola used by Captain Flavel and his wife to watch river traffic.

As guests walk through the large, high-ceilinged rooms, with their elegant woodwork, they will discover furnishings, art, and decor typical of the Flavel home a century ago. Each August the public is invited to partake of English tea and scones from two to four every afternoon in the elegant dining room.

In 1935, George Flavel's great-granddaughter donated the house to the city of Astoria. It is now operated as a museum by the Clatsop County Historical Society.
