After your climb step-by-step to the top of this 125-foot-tall column, the view overlooking the mouth of the Columbia River is worth it! Even if you do not exhaust yourself climbing, climbing and climbing to the top-most observation deck, to some visitors, the view from the bottom plaza is just as spectacular. It is your choice! Historically, financed by the great-grandson of John Jacob Astor in 1926, the column's sgrafitto frieze documents Oregon's early history. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, this attraction is a must for any Astoria visit. All 164 steps!
