The Clatsop County Historical Society is an educational organization dedicated to preserving and presenting the history of Clatsop County Oregon and the surrounding area.
The Clatsop County Historical Society offers four distinctively different museums all housed in historic buildings for you and your family to explore during your visit to Astoria.
Captain George Flavel House

Experience the elegance of the late Victorian period by touring the home of Captain George Flavel. This 1886 Queen Anne home features original Eastlake influenced woodwork, period furnishings, and exotic hardwood fireplace mantels. Begin your tour at the Carriage House Visitor Center (located behind the house on the corner of 7th & Exchange Streets), which houses additional exhibits, the museum store, and orientation video.
Heritage Museum

Built in 1904 as Astoria's City Hall, this building is now home to the Clatsop County Historical Society's regional museum. Explore the history of Clatsop County through temporary and permanent exhibits featuring Native Americans, early pioneers, immigrants, and local industries. The Society's Research Center and Archives are also at this location. 

           
Uppertown Firefighters Museum

The Uppertown Firefighters Museum houses an extensive collection of fire fighting equipment dating from 1873 to 1963. Featured are hand-pulled, horse-drawn, and motorized fire engines, as well as fire fighting memorabilia and photos. Seasonal Hours. Please call for availability.
