Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rocky Mountains. It began in 1811 as a small but ambitious fur trading venture of New York entrepreneur John Jacob Astor and his Pacific Fur Company. The town has seen the development of commerce and trade ebb and flow like the tide throughout its history. Bounded on three sides by water and much of it originally built over the river, Astoria is a town that is deeply rooted in maritime history and traditions. This proud community of 10,000 is ready to share its heritage with the rest of the world.

About the Author

The Columbia River Maritime Museum has selected the best images from its collection to tell the maritime story of Astoria. Established in 1962, the museum is one of the finest maritime museums in the country and has been designated the Oregon State Maritime Museum. Situated on the Oregon shore of the Columbia River, in the heart of Astoria on the waterfront, the museum welcomes over 100,000 visitors a year. The museum's collections and exhibits focus on the lower Columbia and its treacherous bar at the gateway to the Pacific, revealing the dramatic stories of living on the river.
