Portland, OR. Fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la! The Pittock Mansion has been decorated every winter for nearly a half-century. Each year the grand staircase is festooned with red and green ribbons. This year, for “A Pittock Mansion Christmas” the theme is Hobbies and Pastimes. The exhibit is on view through December 31st (closed Christmas). Museum hours are 10am-4pm and tickets for adults are $12. From opera to knitting to beekeeping, the display highlights some familiar and not-so-familiar hobbies and pastimes. See the Mansion in a whole new light as volunteer decorators creatively transform rooms into a holiday extravaganza.
“Our annual holiday event is always popular. We love seeing new and returning visitors come up and experience something different and amazing, while still being able to engage the history of the Mansion as well,” Executive Director Marta Bones states. “We are so grateful to the many volunteers who help us make this event such a success.”
The West Bedroom decorated in the theme of Family Game Night, Circa 1914 by Sabrina Lang Stoffregen in partnership with the Portland Children’s Museum. The West Wing was home to Lucy and Edward Gantenbein, and their children, Rhoda, Georgiana, and Peter.
