Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies; a place that takes visitors back to simpler times, its architecture dominated by hundreds of Victorian homes clinging to steep wooded hillsides and with a revitalized 1920s era downtown; all set against a backdrop of tremendous natural beauty in the temperate rain forest at the mouth of the Columbia River. Visitors have an opportunity to escape into an appealing, intriguing past. Unspoiled and generally uncrowded, Astoria and Warrenton nonetheless have several first-class interpretive attractions including Fort Clatsop, the Columbia River Maritime Museum, the Flavel House, Fort Stevens State Park, the Astoria Riverfront Trolley and the Astoria Column.

  • The Chamber of Commerce idea is a concept found only where private and free enterprise exist. The Chamber of Commerce, as a voluntary institution in the United States, is eight years older than the Declaration of Independence. The New York State Chamber of Commerce, the first in America, was organized in 1768, and five years later, the first local Chamber of Commerce was formed in Charleston, South Carolina. In over 200 years, the Chamber of Commerce has grown from a single purpose federation of traders who organized to promote trade and cut costs by cooperating in certain operations, to a broad based community development association which believes that when men and women of high purpose work together unselfishly on problems which they have in common, progress will result.
