Astoria, Oregon Attractions
Climb the 164 steps of the spiral staircase to the top of the Astoria Column for incredible views of the city and the Columbia River. Perched atop Coxcomb Hill, the column rises 125 feet into the air with a viewing platform at 110 feet.
Built in 1926, the Astoria Column commemorates the early history of Astoria. The exterior features 14 sgraffito murals by Attilio Pusterla which tell the story of Astoria from the discovery of the mouth of the Columbia by Captain Robert Gray in 1792, to the expedition of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark that arrived in 1805, and the railroad connection in 1898.
