Flavel House Museum
I had to debate with myself on what to post for my last photo in Astoria, OR themed week. Many people love visiting the Astoria Column, but I have previously posted a photo of it, seen here. So I thought I would post this sunny photo of the Flavel House Museum. Built in 1885 for Captain George Flavel, the old Queen Anne style victorian is maintained by the Clatsop County Historical Society. The home is fully refurbished and its rooms each display authentic antiques and furniture of the victorian time period. It sits directly across the street from the Astoria Jail, pictured yesterday, and was also featured in the movie The Goonies (it was the museum where Mikeys father worked).
