“Not much of an attraction.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Fence and painting and sign stuck on a corner of a lot in downtown Astoria. Easy to miss and not much there. There a so many better historic spots in the area.

“nice”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

This is a very small recreation of fort Astoria. Not much to it,just a small fort and very quaint. If your looking for something big this isn't it..but it is nice.
