Astoria Column


The concrete, 125-foot-tall Astoria Column Lighthouse has stood on 600-foot Coxcomb Hill for over 80 years. It was modeled after Trajan’s Column in Italy. When it was first constructed, Italian artisans were even brought in to create the bas-relief murals that wind their way up the column. The view from the hill is grand, but the view from atop the lighthouse is spectacular—truly worthy of the 164-step climb.
