Fodor's Review

A favorite photo stop, this structure, little more than ruins, was home to a Tiffany heiress. Built in 1905 and spanning 60 rooms, the house didn't last long because seawater, rather than freshwater, was used in the cement. The ruins have been featured in music videos. In July, the Portland Jerk Festival is held here. The property is down a rough road, and it is surrounded by a huge chain-link fence. However the gate to the fence is wide open. The site is out of the way, and it is probably best not to go there alone.
