Founded by John Jacob Astor in 1811 as a fur trading post, Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rocky Mountains. Astoria is where the Columbia River meets the Pacific Ocean at the western most end of the Lewis and Clark Trail.
Drawn by the similar geography, fishing and logging Nordic immigrants started arriving in the mid-1800’s. Finns were the largest group and Astoria had the largest Finnish population west of the Mississippi River.
Astoria continues to celebrate its strong Nordic ties with the annual Astoria Scandinavian Midsummer Festival held in June.
