8th and Duane, Astoria Oregon 97103
This magnificent home, considered by many to be the finest example of Queen Anne style architecture in Astoria
, sits on park-like grounds covering an entire city block. 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.
