About Flavel House
Astoria is located in and is the county seat of Clatsop County, Oregon. Lewis and Clark spent the winter of 1805-1806 at Fort Clatsop near present-day Astoria. It was first settled in 1811 by a fur trader and incorporated as a city in 1876.
The Flavel House is an 1885 Queen Anne Style Victorian Home that is decorated today with period furnishings and open to the public. It was originally built for Captain George Flavel and his family. It is an 11,600 square foot mansion. Patricia Flavel donated the home to the city of Astoria. The city of Astoria wanted to tear the house down for different reasons; once to build a park, once to build a parking lot. They even gave the house back to Patricia at one point. She then donated it to the county. Finally, some local citizens got together to save the house. Today it is a museum.
