The historic Ladd-Reingold House, built in 1910 by early Portland mayor William Ladd, is an attraction all by itself, with backward doors, secret hiding spots and a ceiling mermaid mural. It is also home to the Hat Museum. With more than 1,000 hats from vintage to novelty to modern, the museum boasts the largest collection in the country. Note: Reservations are required for the tour.
