Clatsop County Heritage Museum

Search Astoria Oregon

The Clatsop County Heritage Museum can be found in a beautiful, neo-classical building which was built in 1904 and was formerly the Astoria City Hall. The museum's popular rotating and permanent exhibits bring this area's impressive history to life. Displays feature different aspects of Clatsop County's heritage--natural history, Indian artifacts, early immigrants and settlers of the area, important maritime events and art history represent some of the stories the museum has to tell.

After use as City Hall, public library, a USO club for WWII servicemen, and the first home of the Columbia River Maritime Museum, the building was an empty derelict until restored by the Clatsop County Historical Society.
