Great house and well-restored. Thanks to all the volunteers who have contributed to the maintenance and preservation of their city's history. It was very interesting and the movie was a great set up to the importance of the family in Astoria and California.

A nifty survey of 19th-century architecture and furnishings, including a piano. Mary Flavel's painting of peonies is a feature of the parlor. Grounds incorporate indigenous trees and wildflowers and a European parterre plus a small herb bed.

The Flavel House allows you to wander the private rooms and grounds of a prominent and affluent family in the 19th century. Many of the furnishings, including the window shutters, are original. The tour is self-guided, but there is a docent onsite to answer questions.

This house was lovely with well marked information about each room. The plants in the yard were somewhat neglected but the gardener was working on them as we toured.

No not without walking. The trolley runs along the water front and this house is up a few blocks.

There is a lot to see and enjoy on the first floor. This old house was not built in a time when builders considered disability This attraction would be hard to enjoy in a wheelchair too.
