This Mansion was built as a private home in 1905 by Mr. James A. Moore. During the roaring twenties, the Mansion was a speakeasy; with secret underground tunnels and passageways which aided in "rum running." Located alongside the Columbia River, the Mansion has served as a private residence, retirement home, restaurant and special event venue. The Moore Mansion was more recently restored after being destroyed by arson fire in 2001.

Gayle and I recently attended her Niece's Wedding here on a warm Saturday evening. The Wedding and associated reception were fabulous. The Bride was radiant, family and friends were joyful, the venue was stunning, and a great time was had by all. All of it was lovingly overseen by one of the Mansion owners (who live here), who later commented that we were the best dancing Weddings that she had hosted here. My only quibbles with the Moore Mansion and the event were:

- Larger bathroom facilities would be nice.

- The property's guest quarters could be upgraded to better would meld in with the rest of this very attractive property.

- It's unfortunate that you can't easily see the Columbia river (over the levee).

I also allowed myself a little bit of time for introspection while I was here. Gayle was especially gorgeous, smart, and sexy, which makes me one lucky husband! There is indeed life after divorce. And even though there are no guarantees that a given marriage will last, these events only confirm my most optimistic hopes and aspirations. I'm also reminded a a particular Star Trek: The Next Generation episode where Riker and Data are discussing trust and betrayal:

Riker: "In all trust there is the possibility of betrayal. I'm not sure you were prepared for that."

Data: "Were you prepared, sir?"

Riker: "I don't think anybody ever is."

Data: "Then it is better not to trust."

Riker: "Without trust, there's no friendship, no closeness, none of the emotional bonds that make us who we are."

Data: "And yet you put yourself at risk."

Riker: "Every single time."
