Astoria is Oregon?s oldest city. First established as a fur trading outpost in 1810 by subordinates of John Jacob Astor, the city is an important part of the history of the Northwest. Here is where the first U.S. Post Office and the first U.S. Customs House were built, west of the Rockies. Because of its strategically important location along the Columbia River, Astoria played a large role in 19th and early 20th century trade and transportation. In fact, the city?s population in 1900 nearly equaled its present-day population.
