Owner description: Hi, thank you for changing our website, but our name has changed as well (which is the most important). Please see the change above from "Historic Deepwood Estate" to "Deepwood Museum." Thank you.

The Deepwood Estate is truly a well-preserved piece of history. The surrounding garden was superb, with more flower varieties than can be listed. I was more impressed, overall, with the Bush mansion, which is quite literally just down the street. If I were to choose one of these two mansions to visit, I'd pick Bush mansion, and stroll the gardens of Deepwood. The largest difference between the two stately homes is the Bush mansion has most of the original furnishings and a more consistent family history to share.

The Deepwood house is remarkably well preserved and in excellent condition for an 1893 house. The tour and history of the house and families which occupied it is interesting and well worth your time. Should not be missed if visitng Salem, Oregon. The grounds are also very tidy and well maintained. The only drawback is an overly busy street in front of the mansion house. Admission is a small nominal amount of a few dollars per person.

Definitely worth a visit to this lovely estate built in late 1800's and existing much as it was. Stained glass windows by Povey, "the Tiffany of the North West", were beautiful and unusual, as was the craftsmanship throughout. The gardens, originally designed by the first team of female landscape architects, are spectacular, and lovingly cared for by a team of talented volunteers. Gardens open to the public free of charge at any time, but house tours are only on the hour from 9-12, so time your visit and take advantage of seeing the inside on a guided tour for a nominal fee.

I was just there today for a Celebration of Life for a co-worker. I was blown away! Anyone who is even a little interested in the Victorian era will not want to leave this house. The gardens, gazebos and interesting mazes are something that you will not soon forget. I do not live in the Salem area, (Springfield), but I plan to take one of their "tours" and it probably will not be the last!

This beautiful old historic house would be reason enough for a long visit and tour, but the estate is surrounded by a lovely garden and grounds. Leave plenty of time when you come.
