Astoria, Oregon is a city in Clatsop County, Oregon, United States. It lies at the mouth of the Columbia River and is named after John Jacob Astor (1763–1848), American entrepreneur and founder of New York City's prominent Astor family. The population was 9,477 at the 2010 census. The Lewis and Clark Expedition spent most of September 1805 at Fort Clatsop near Point Adams about two miles north of present-day Astoria; their journals tell much about this area. The city has a deepwater port connected to ocean vessels through the Columbia River Maritime Highway system with its terminus located within neighboring Warrenton via US 30/OR 6 (the Seaside Freeway). A large rail facility built in 1974 connects freight from all over North America to ships bound for every part of the world; it moves more than 100 million tons annually—about one-fifth that moved by all U.S.
