The Captain George Flavel House Museum (//) known also as Capt. George Flavel House and Carriage House or the Flavel Mansion, is now a house museum in Astoria, Oregon, United States. It was built in 1885 in the Queen Anne architectural style, by George Flavel, a Columbia River bar pilot who was one of the area's first millionaires.
The house was originally constructed in 1885 by George Flavel, a maritime pilot and entrepreneur who amassed a fortune in his business over the course of thirty years. The 11,600-square-foot (1,080 m2) house, which spans a whole city block, features Queen Anne architecture. After Flavel's death in 1893, his wife, Mary Christina, lived in the house with the couple's daughters, Nellie and Katie, until her death in 1922. Both Katie and Nelly also lived in the home until their deaths in 1910 and 1933, respectively.
